NY Adds Three States, DC and Puerto Rico to COVID-19 Travel Quarantine List | Politics | Instant News

Three more states, Washington, DC and Puerto Rico have been added to New York’s COVID-19 travel advisory, Governor Andrew Cuomo announced Tuesday. People visiting New York from Illinois, Kentucky and Minnesota, as well as DC and Puerto Rico, must be quarantined for 14 days after arrival. New York residents who travel to any of the states listed in the notice must be quarantined for two weeks after their return. There are 34 states on the New York Quarantine List, which includes Arizona, Alabama, Arkansas, Arizona, California, Delaware, Florida, Georgia, Illinois, Iowa, Kansas, Kentucky, Louisiana, Maryland, Minnesota, Missouri, Mississippi, Montana, North Carolina, North Dakota, Nebraska, New Mexico, Nevada, Ohio, Oklahoma, South Carolina , Tennessee, Texas, Utah, Virginia, Washington and Wisconsin. The decision to add states to the travel advisory is based on a formula. If the number of positive cases is greater than 10 per 100,000 population or if the positivity rate is greater than 10% over a seven-day period, the state or territory will be added to the quarantine list. “Our job is to make sure we are doing everything we can to control COVID, which we are doing,” Cuomo said. He added that the situation in other states was “still very bad”. Meanwhile, New York contains COVID-19. The infection rate on Monday was 0.93%, according to Cuomo. There have been over 57,000 tests performed statewide. .
