New York has added three more states to the travel advisory -- Illinois, Kentucky and Minnesota.

This makes a total of 34 states included in the advisory.

Cuomo made the announcement Tuesday, saying Washington D.C. and Puerto Rico will also be added to the advisory.

"Our job is to make sure we're doing everything we can to control COVID, which we are doing - anticipate possible future issues that might come along, and in that regard the future issues that we watch are the infection rate across the country spreading, number one," said Cuomo. "Number two our compliance of the rules that we now have in place across the state. On the situation across the nation, it is still very bad, and there are more states that have exceeded our thresholds for quarantine."

States are added to the list if, over a seven-day rolling average, they have a positive test rate higher than 10 per 100,000 people, or an overall positivity rate of 10% or higher.

Anyone coming to New York from these states, is advised to quarantine for 14 days to monitor for coronavirus symptoms.
