Governor Cuomo Press Release – July 21 : 10 More States added to Watch List – Only 2 COVID Deaths in State

Governor Cuomo Announces Individuals Traveling to New York From 10 Additional States will be Required to Quarantine for 14 Days

Alaska, Delaware, Indiana, Maryland, Missouri, Montana, North Dakota, Nebraska, Virginia and Washington Meet Metrics to Qualify for Travel Advisory

State Liquor Authority Suspended License of Four Bars and Restaurants Downstate

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

2 COVID-19 Deaths in New York State Yesterday – Lowest Since First Fatalities of Pandemic, No Fatalities in New York City  

Confirms 855 Additional Coronavirus Cases in New York State – Bringing Statewide Total to 408,181; New Cases in 46 Counties 

Governor Andrew M. Cuomo today announced that 10 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 Alaska, Delaware, Indiana, Maryland, Missouri, Montana, North Dakota, Nebraska, Virginia and Washington. 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 percent or higher positivity rate over a 7-day rolling average.

“As infection rates increase in 41 other states, our numbers continue to steadily decline, thanks to the hard work of New Yorkers and our incremental, data-driven opening. Yesterday, we had our lowest death toll since the pandemic began – and with no fatalities in New York City. While today’s numbers are encouraging, we must remain vigilant,” Governor Cuomo said. “We are adding 10 states to the travel advisory – individuals coming from Alaska, Indiana, Delaware, Maryland, Missouri, Montana, North Dakota, Nebraska, Virginia and Washington must quarantine for 14 days. The restaurants and bars that encourage young people to congregate threaten to bring us back to the hell we experienced three months ago – yesterday, the State Liquor Authority suspended the liquor licenses of four bars and restaurants. This is a dangerous situation, and the bad operators will make it worse for themselves and everyone, so be smart, wear a mask, stay New York Tough.”
