Traveling to NY Soon? MN Added to Quarantine Advisory List
A pandemic probably isn't a good time to quarantine anyways, but in case you're planning a trip to New York, prepare to be there for at least two weeks...quarantined.
New York on Tuesday added Minnesota to its list of quarantine travel advisory. Because of the recent spread of COVID-19, New York Governor Andrew Cuomo has said anyone coming from Minnesota, Wisconsin, New Mexico and Ohio will be required to quarantine for two weeks after arriving.
The quarantine order applies to anyone coming from a state with a positive corona test rate higher than 10 per 100,000 residents over a seven-day rolling average. Enforcement of the quarantine will begin at the airports.
"I cannot be more clear: Look at what's happening in the rest of the country — if we are not smart, if we don't wear masks and socially distance, cases will spike," Cuomo said, as reported by New York Patch. "No one wants to go back to the hell we experienced three months ago, so please stay vigilant."
As of Tuesday, July 14, 22 states were on New York's quarantine travel advisory list including:
- North Carolina
- New Mexico
- South Carolina
Minnesota has seen 398 new COVID-19 cases in the last 24 hours reports WJON (as of Tuesday, July 14), including 13 in Stearns County, 8 in Wright, 1 in Benton, 1 in Isanti, 1 in Douglas, and 1 in Morrison.
