Local families affected by New York State's travel advisory

Local families are being affected by New York State's travel advisory.

Governor Cuomo announced last week that anyone coming to New York from a state currently hit hard by the coronavirus would have to quarantine for two weeks and those returning to New York from those states would have to quarantine as well.

Gabrielle Iannarilli lives in Boonville. Her kids are supposed to be returning home July 14, but due to the state's travel advisory and mandatory quarantine, she is not sure when they will come home. Her children are in Georgia with their grandmother because it's been hard for Iannarilli to find reliable child care right now.

“It’s disheartening not to know when you’re going to see your kids again, I was thinking I was going to see them in two weeks and now I don’t know if they’re going to be there another four weeks, or if they’ll come home in time, I thought about flying down to get them but then I will have to quarantine," Iannarilli said.

This is just the beginning of her ruined plans. She is getting married in September and a lot of changes have been made.

“I’ve been worried about our wedding all summer long," Iannarilli said. "I have bridesmaids coming in from Florida and North Carolina coming, they don’t seem worried about it but obviously I’m the bride so I’m freaking out a little bit.”

She says what she would like to see is Governor Cuomo consider doing what Alaska and Hawaii are doing.

"It would be really nice if Governor Cuomo would let my guests take a coronavirus test in lieu of quarantining," Iannarilli said. "Some other states are doing that, they're letting them take a test and show proof they had a negative test and they don't have to quarantine."

Mike Kalil is a Clinton native. He now lives in Fort Myers, Florida and he is planning to come home August 19.

"Right now, I'm still scheduled to come up to the area the third week of August," Kalil said. "My oldest sister Kacie is expecting her first child in the next couple of weeks."

His plans haven't changed yet, but they could.

"My intentions are, or at least were, to come up there, stay with my family in Clinton for two weeks," Kalil said. "Right now, that's up in the air, depending on what Governor Cuomo decides, if you still have to do a mandatory two-week quarantine when coming to the area."

Even though he plans to be in the area for two weeks, quarantining isn't exactly what he had planned.

"Two weeks, for me personally, I'm already there, it would just be a matter of staying at my parents house, not going out and about and that's not really the point of why I want to go up there," Kalil said.

Kalil hopes things change before he is supposed to travel.

"I want to be there so badly, it's going to be my first nephew, all I want to do is be there for him and my family and see them, I haven't seen them since Christmas time because their travel plans were also cancelled," Kalil said.
