Cuomo Adds New States and Territories to Travel Advisory List

Governor Andrew M. Cuomo adds Hawaii, South Dakota, and the Virgin Islands to the travel advisory list, which requires all travelers to quarantine upon entering New York State. Alaska, New Mexico, Ohio, and Rhode Island were removed from the list.

Cuomo explained that to protect New York's progress, "we must keep up our efforts. We cannot go back to the hell we experienced a few months ago, which is why we are adding Hawaii, South Dakota, and the Virgin Islands to the travel advisory."

The quarantine applies to anyone arriving from an area with a positive test rate higher than 10 per 100,000 residents or an area with a 10 percent or higher positivity rate. Both methods are calculated over a 7-day rolling average.

Travelers from Alaska, New Mexico, Ohio, and Rhode Island currently quarantining are still required to complete their 14 days.

States on the travel advisory list include:

Alabama

Arkansas

Arizona

California

Florida

Georgia

Hawaii

Iowa

Idaho

Illinois

Indiana

Kansas

Kentucky

Louisiana

Maryland

Minnesota

Missouri

Mississippi

Montana

North Carolina
