ALBANY, N.Y. (WIVB) — Minnesota, New Mexico, Ohio and Wisconsin have been added to New York’s travel advisory.
Here is the full list of states under New York’s travel advisory:
- North Carolina
- New Mexico
- South Carolina
Anyone who comes to New York from any of these states must stay in quarantine for 14 days. These states have positive test rates that are higher than 10 per 100,000 residents over a seven-day rolling average, or a positivity rate of at least 10 percent over a 7-day rolling average.
On Monday, Gov. Andrew Cuomo issued an emergency order saying people who come to New York from states with high rates of infection must provide authorities with their contact information after arriving.
Cuomo says the new order is in response to people not complying with the 14-day quarantine order for travelers.
The Governor says that if a traveler fails to provide their contact information, they’ll receive a summons with a $2,000 fine.
