ALBANY, N.Y. – New York has removed six states from the travel advisory because they no longer meet the criteria to require quarantine.
States and territories are added to the advisory when they have an overall positivity rate above 10% over a seven-day rolling average.
"When other states and territories make progress fighting COVID-19, that's good for New York and while I am glad to see areas removed from the travel advisory list, it still remains far too long," said Gov. Andrew Cuomo. "Make no mistake: We must continue to be New York Tough and stay smart. Wearing masks, social distancing and hand washing is what tamed this beast in New York and we must keep it up."
Below is a full list of states and territories currently included in the travel advisory:
- North Carolina
- North Dakota
- Puerto Rico
- South Carolina
- South Dakota
- West Virginia
