New York and New Jersey Governors Andrew Cuomo (D) and Ned LaMont (D) have just announced that Americans coming from Florida and other states are subject to a new travel advisory, and because of the “significant community spread of COVID” in their communities would have to “quarantine for 14 days.”
The announcement was made at a live press conference moments ago and was echoed on Cuomo’s Twitter account.
“The data includes new cases reported by Johns Hopkins through Tuesday. The states seeing record-high averages are Alabama, Arizona, California, Florida, Nevada, North Carolina, Oklahoma, Oregon, South Carolina and Texas,” stated a CNN report.
In the early days of the pandemic, Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis (R) implemented the same policy for New Yorkers traveling to Florida.
Connecticut is also part of this travel pact.
Florida is experiencing a huge surge in COVID-19 cases since Gov. Ron DeSantis (R) began to re-open the state.
I am announcing with @GovMurphy and @GovNedLamont a joint travel advisory. All individuals traveling from states with significant community spread of COVID into NY, NJ, or CT must quarantine for 14 days.
This travel advisory is effective midnight tonight.
