Tri-State to Require Visitors From COVID Hotspots to Quarantine
New York, New Jersey and Connecticut will require a self-quarantine for travelers from states that hit a specified infection level
What to Know
- New York, New Jersey and Connecticut will impose a quarantine on travelers from any state where infections pass a certain level
- The order currently applies to nine states: Alabama, Arizona, Arkansas, Florida, North Carolina, South Carolina, Washington, Utah, Texas
- The 14-day self-quarantine order mirrors similar orders other states imposed on New Yorkers earlier in the crisis
The governors of New York, New Jersey and Connecticut said Wednesday they will implement a mandatory quarantine on visitors to their states from viral hotspots, part of a coordinated effort to sustain low local infection rates as coronavirus cases surge to two-month highs across nearly half of the country.
The order does not block people from traveling. But it does make clear that if you’ve been in a state that meets the guidelines — like taking a vacation to Florida and then coming home, or visiting New York from Texas on business — you will have to quarantine for 14 days on arriving here.
New York City, the former epicenter of the national epidemic, now boasts one of the lowest COVID transmission rates in the nation. New study data from COVID Act Now shows New York and New Jersey are two of just three states on track to contain COVID. Meanwhile, new U.S. coronavirus cases have soared to levels last seen in April as the pandemic first worsened across America.
