New York Tri-State Area

to Impose Quarantine on Travelers

From COVID-19 Hotspots The governors of New York, New Jersey and

Connecticut have joined together to sustain

the low COVID-19 infection rates in their states. All travelers from COVID-19

hotspots will be required

to self-quarantine for at least

14 days upon their arrival. New York and New Jersey, the former epicenter

of the COVID-19 outbreak in the United States,

are now two of just three states currently on

track to contain the virus. NJ Governor Phil

Murphy, via NBC According to New York Governor Andrew Cuomo,

the quarantine will apply to states that have a

positive COVID-19 rate of 10 percent. It will also apply to states where 10 out of every 100,000

people test positive on a seven-day rolling average. Nine states currently meet that threshold:

Alabama, Arkansas, Arizona, Florida, North Carolina,

South Carolina, Washington, Utah and Texas.
