NEW YORK (KWWL) -- Governor Andrew Cuomo announced Tuesday he is expanding the list of states where residents will be required to quarantine for two weeks when traveling to New York. Iowa is now included.
New Jersey and Connecticut are also issuing the same guidance as New York for the same states.
The guidance requires a travel restriction to any state that has “a positive (COVID-19) 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.”
Last week, governors declared 8 states had to quarantine when traveling to the three states, which has now doubled to 16 as more states see rising case numbers. Those states are:
- North Carolina
- South Carolina
Visitors to New York, New Jersey and Connecticut from the states listed above are advised to observe at 14-day self-quarantine period.
