Cuomo Removes Five States From Quarantine List
Governor Andrew Cuomo has removed five states from New York’s coronavirus quarantine list – Alaska, Arizona, Delaware, Maryland and Montana.
Guam has been added.
The advisory requires individuals who have traveled to New York from areas with significant community spread to quarantine for 14 days.
"New Yorkers made enormous sacrifices to get our numbers as low as they are today, and we don't want to give up an inch of that hard-earned progress. That's why these travel advisory precautions are so important - we don't want people who travel to states with high community spread to bring the virus back here," Cuomo said.
Here's the full, updated travel advisory list:
- North Carolina
- North Dakota
- Puerto Rico
- South Carolina
- South Dakota
- Virgin Islands

That’s 18 days in a row that the positivity rate was under 1%
