Each Tuesday, New York updates its list of states that are on its travel advisory list. If you’re traveling in from one of these states you’re required to quarantine for 14 days upon arrival. This week, New York has added the following five states back to the list- Arizona, Minnesota, Nevada, Rhode Island, and Wyoming.
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 percent or higher positivity rate over a 7-day rolling average.
The governor also announced that New York State has now conducted 10 million COVID-19 diagnostic tests. The number of new cases, percentage of tests that were positive and many other helpful data points are always available at forward.ny.gov.
The full, updated travel advisory list is below:
- Alabama, Alaska, Arkansas, Arizona, Delaware, Florida, Georgia, Guam, Idaho, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kansas, Kentucky, Louisiana, Minnesota, Missouri, Mississippi, Montana, North Carolina, North Dakota, Nebraska, Nevada, Oklahoma, Puerto Rico, Rhode Island, South Carolina, South Dakota, Tennessee, Texas, Utah, Virginia, Wisconsin, West Virginia, Wyoming
Unfortunately this isn’t the news we’re hoping to hear each week. We’ve seen several states being removed the past few weeks, however that’s not the case today with 5 states being added back, and no states being removed. Here’s to better news next week that we’ll see some states come off this list.
If you were hoping to travel to New York from one of these newly added states, you may want to reconsider your travels. Feel free to share your comments below.
