Rhode Island added to + Delaware & D.C. removed from New York Travel Advisory Watchlist

Today, NY Governor Andrew Cuomo announced that the state of Rhode Island has been added to New York State’s travel advisory watch-list which requires folks traveling to NY from states on that list to quarantine for 14 days.

Again, the calculation used in determining whether a state belongs on the list is as follows: 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.

Previously, there were 36 states on the list. Delaware and Washington D.C. have been removed from the list. Thus, the total now stands at 35 locales – the term “Locales” is used considering how Puerto Rico and D.C. are not states.

“We cannot go back to the hell we experienced just a few months ago – and surging infection rates across the country threaten to bring us back there – so we must all remain vigilant,” said the Governor

As we’ve mentioned in the past, there is still the unresolved situation of travelers coming in to New York through the roads. There are safeguards in place at the airports yet none for those arriving via vehicles. Anyone coming in through the roads from locales on the list are trusted to do the right thing with a self-quarantine. In addition, the Governor once stated that 90% of all arriving individuals into New York State come through the airports.

The following four lines come from the NY State Department of Health website:

  • The travel advisory requires all New Yorkers, as well as those visiting from out of state, to take personal responsibility for complying with the advisory in the best interest of public health and safety.
  • For questions about the travel advisory please refer to the guidance linked here.
  • For general inquires contact the call the Hotline: 1-888-364-3065 or Ask a Question.
  • To file a report of an individual failing to adhere to the quarantine pursuant to the travel advisory click here or call 1-833-789-0470.
