Arizona, Minnesota, Nevada, Rhode Island & Wyoming meet metrics to qualify; no areas are removed
Gov. Andrew Cuomo on Tuesday announced five states – Arizona, Minnesota, Nevada, Rhode Island, and Wyoming – have been added to New York State's COVID-19 travel advisory. No areas have been removed.
The advisory requires individuals who have traveled to New York from areas with significant community spread to quarantine for 14 days. The quarantine applies to any person arriving from an area with a positive test rate higher than 10 per 100,000 residents over a 7-day rolling average or an area with a 10% or higher positivity rate over a 7-day rolling average.
The governor also announced New York has now conducted 10 million COVID-19 diagnostic tests. The number of new cases, percentage of tests that were positive and other helpful data points are available at forward.ny.gov.
"For a clear example of the continuing extent of the COVID crisis in America, look no further than New York's travel advisory list. The virus' spread across the country – new cases have increased more than 15% in the last 10 days – makes it all the more urgent that we stay vigilant here at home," Cuomo said. "That's why New Yorkers need to continue wearing masks, socially distancing and washing their hands in conjunction with the careful enforcement of local governments. We can defeat this virus by staying ‘New York Tough,’ but we have a long way to go."
