Five Additions Made to New York Travel Advisory List
As coronavirus cases around the country rise, Governor Andrew Cuomo has five new additions to as part of the state-wide travel advisory. The advisory requires individuals who travel to New York from those states to quarantine for 14 days.
On Tuesday morning, Cuomo added Illinois, Kentucky, and Minnesota. He also added Puerto Rico and Washington D.C. to the list as well.
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% or higher positivity rate over a 7-day rolling average.

All out-of-state travelers from designated states must complete a form upon entering New York with information about them, including their address and reason for traveling. Travelers who leave the airport without completing the form will be subject to a $2,000 fine and may be brought to a hearing and ordered to complete mandatory quarantine. Travelers coming to New York from designated states through other means of transport, including trains and cars, must fill out the form online.
People caught violating the advisory risk civil penalties ranging from $2,000 to $10,000, Gov. Cuomo said last month.
