And Then There were 35 on the NY Travel Advisory – Five Added
NY Governor Andrew Cuomo announced that five states were added on to state’s travel advisory. States were identified as Arizona, Minnesota, Nevada, Rhode Island, and Wyoming.
When the Governor last spoke, on September 15, six locales were removed. They were comprised of California, Hawaii, Maryland, Minnesota, Nevada, Northern Mariana Islands, and Ohio.
“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 percent in the last 10 days—makes it all the more urgent that we stay vigilant here at home,” Governor 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.”
As a reminder, visitors from states and localities on the list are required to fill out the NY Department of Health Travel Form and subject themselves to a mandatory quarantine of 14 days. This includes New Yorker returning from trips taken to such locales.
The States (and localities) on the Travel Advisory List are as follow:
