HERKIMER, N.Y. — Herkimer County is requiring people visiting the county or returning from travel to self-quarantine for two weeks in an effort to limit the spread of coronavirus.

County officials say anyone who was in the greater New York City area after March 14 for more than 24 hours must self-isolate for 14 days. People who were in other areas outside of New York City are also required to quarantine for 14 days, with the exception of state and federal officials or medical professionals.

The Herkimer County Public Health Department also asks people to follow the domestic travel safety guidelines established by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

Otsego County has also issued similar guidance, asking anyone traveling to the area from New York City to contact the county Department of Health and self-isolate for two weeks.
