ALBANI – Gov. Andrew Cuomo is expanding his 14-day travel advisory list on coronavirus to 34 states plus Puerto Rico, he said Tuesday.
“Our job is to make sure we do our best to control COVID – what we do – [and to] anticipate possible future problems that may arise together, “Cuomo told reporters during a news conference in Albany.
“As for the situation in the country, it is still very bad, and there are more states that have exceeded our quarantine threshold. Illinois, Kentucky, Minnesota, Washington, DC are now being added to the list,” he said.
“Puerto Rico has also been added to the list. So that means we are now in 34 states, the District of Columbia and Puerto Rico that are on the quarantine list. ”
More than half of the country, as well as Puerto Rico and the country̵7;s capital, were listed after their viral data flew under New York, New Jersey and Connecticut rules set in late June.
The condition is added if their data show a positive coronavirus test that exceeds 10 per 10,000 inhabitants over an average seven-day period, or a 10 percent or higher positivity rate over the same time frame.
People who fly to New York must also fill out a survey detailing where they are going and where they plan to go.
If they leave the airport without completing the necessary documents, they can be fined up to $ 2,000.
“If you refuse to fill out a form at airports, you are leaving the airport illegal,” Cuomo said, declining to provide a number of violators or summonses issued to date.
