NYC Sheriff’s Office Announce COVID-19 Checkpoint/Vehicle Corridor

The NYC Sheriff’s Office posted an alert on Twitter about this evening’s ‘Quarantine Checkpoint’. It follows up NYC Mayor de Blasio’s announcement earlier today concerning COVID-19 Checkpoints to be instituted as a way to enforce the State’s travel advisory quarantine regulations. Today’s checkpoint, the first of its kind, would be taking place in the borough of Staten Island.

It is, what we believe to be the very first considering how the initial announcement came earlier in the day.

Those entering into New York State, who have spent more than 24 hours in any state found on New York’s Restricted State list, must not only fill out a required form but, as well, subject themselves to a quarantine of 14 days.

Failure to quarantine is a violation of State law, and individuals who fail to quarantine are subject to a $10,000 fine. Individuals who refuse to fill out the New York State Department of Health travel form are subject to a $2,000 fine.

The tweet reads and is as follows:

CHECKPOINT/VEHICLE STOP CORRIDOR: Deputy Sheriffs will conduct Quarantine Checkpoint / Vehicle Stops on I-278 Eastbound (Staten Island Expressway) 8/5/2020 from 6:30 PM to 9:30 PM.
