Governor Cuomo: 43 Localities Now Meet Criteria for NY Travel Advisory Quarantine

NY Governor Andrew Cuomo today announced that Connecticut, New Jersey and Pennsylvania now meet the criteria for being listed on the state’s DOH Travel Advisory Watch List. In addition, Arizona and Maryland were added as well.

Yet, due to those three state’s proximity to New York it would not be practicable to force the mandatory 14 day quarantine upon those traveling across state borders.

“We are now in a situation where 43 states meet the criteria for our travel advisory. This is really a bizarre outcome, considering New York once had the highest infection rate,” Governor Cuomo said. “There is no practical way to quarantine New York from Pennsylvania, New Jersey and Connecticut. There are just too many interchanges, interconnections, and people who live in one place and work in the other. It would have a disastrous effect on the economy, and remember while we’re fighting this public health pandemic we’re also fighting to open up the economy. However, to the extent travel between the states is not essential, it should be avoided.”

The Governor had hypothetically spoken to this issue in the past during one of his previous press conferences.

Neighboring states Connecticut, New Jersey and Pennsylvania now meet the criteria for the travel advisory — however, given the interconnected nature of the region and mode of transport between us, a quarantine on these states is not practically viable. That said, New York State highly discourages, to the extent practical, non-essential travel to and from these states while they meet the travel advisory criteria.

We mentioned above that 43 localities were now eligible in contrast to the Governor’s Office declaring it as 43 states. The reason being that Puerto Rico and Guam, both on the list, are not states.

Here below is the updated listing of states actually on the list short of the three mentioned above:
