Governor Cuomo Press Release – July 14, 2020 : More States Added to Quarantine List

Governor Cuomo Announces Individuals Traveling to New York From Four Additional States will be Required to Quarantine for 14 Days

State and local contact tracing efforts found that 35 percent of people who attended a Fourth of July weekend party in Suffolk County – or more than 1/3 of the entire party – became infected with COVID-19, demonstrating how quickly the virus can spread.

Minnesota, New Mexico, Ohio and Wisconsin Meet Metrics to Qualify for Travel Advisory 

1.5 Percent of Yesterday’s COVID-19 Tests were Positive 

5 COVID-19 Deaths in New York State Yesterday 

Confirms 912 Additional Coronavirus Cases in New York State – Bringing Statewide Total to 403,175; New Cases in 51 Counties 

Governor Andrew M. Cuomo today announced that four additional states meet the metrics to qualify for the travel advisory requiring individuals who have traveled to New York from those states, all of which have significant community spread, to quarantine for 14 days. The newly-added states are Minnesota, New Mexico, Ohio and Wisconsin. Delaware has been removed. The quarantine applies to any person arriving from a state with a positive test rate higher than 10 per 100,000 residents over a 7-day rolling average or a state with a 10% or higher positivity rate over a 7-day rolling average. Yesterday, Governor Cuomo announced a travel enforcement operation will commence today at airports across the state to help ensure travelers are following the state’s quarantine restrictions and to help contain the rates of COVID-19 transmission in New York State.

The number of new cases, percentage of tests that were positive and many other helpful data points are always available at forward.ny.gov.

“New Yorkers showed incredible courage and resiliency throughout this pandemic, and nowhere is their work more evident than in the numbers we release every day, including in New York City, once a global hotspot,” Governor Cuomo said. “However, the success of our efforts depends on citizens’ willingness to comply with state guidance, socially distance, wear masks and wash their hands, and rising cases around the country continue to threaten our progress, which is why four new states have been added to New York’s travel advisory.

“It’s also clear based on contact tracing that many of the new cases in New York are a result of a lack of compliance during the July 4 weekend and illustrate how quickly the virus spreads, with one party, for example, infecting more than a third of attendees,” Governor Cuomo continued. “I cannot be more clear: Look at what’s happening in the rest of the country — if we are not smart, if we don’t wear masks and socially distance, cases will spike. No one wants to go back to the hell we experienced three months ago, so please stay vigilant.”
