ALBANY, N.Y. – New York has added Hawaii, South Dakota and the Virgin Islands to the state’s travel advisory, while removing Alaska, New Mexico, Ohio and Rhode Island.
Anyone traveling to New York from any of the states on the list are advised to quarantine for 14 days upon arrival.
“Our numbers continue to remain low and steady, which shows this virus will respond to an approach based on science, not politics. In order to protect this progress, we must keep up our efforts - we cannot go back to the hell we experienced a few months ago, which is why we are adding Hawaii, South Dakota and Virgin Islands to the travel advisory,” said Gov. Andrew Cuomo.
States are added to the advisory when virus positivity rates go above 10% over a seven-day rolling average, and removed when they fall below that threshold.
Below is a full list of states currently included in the travel advisory:
- North Carolina
- North Dakota
- Puerto Rico
- South Carolina
- South Dakota
- Virgin Islands
