New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo announced Wednesday, June 24th that New York and two neighboring states (New Jersey and Connecticut) would begin requiring certain out-of-state visitors to self-quarantine for two weeks based on the state from which they are traveling. While the self-quarantine is based on the honor system, there could be legal ramifications and fines if caught not abiding.
This order applies to anyone coming from a state with a transmission rate above 10 per 100,000 people on a seven-day rolling average or 10 percent of the total population testing positive on a seven-day rolling average. As a result, quarantine states will likely ebb and flow based on these calculations.
As of July 7th, 2020 - travelers from the following states meet these criteria for the 14-day self-quarantine:
- North Carolina
- South Carolina
The order also applies to those who live in NY, NJ and CT who return from a state on the quarantine list. The order took effect at midnight on Wednesday, June 24th 2020.
Cain has generated reporting to determine travelers who may be impacted by this over the next several days and has contacted them to advise. Should the order impact other states, Cain will continue to provide updates.
