VERONA, N.Y. – In light of the new travel advisory requiring people from certain states to quarantine upon entering New York, the Oneida Indian Nation is advising employees to avoid traveling to the designated states.
Gov. Andrew Cuomo virtually joined other governors Wednesday to announce that, starting Thursday, New York, Connecticut and New Jersey would require visitors from states with high infection rates to quarantine for two weeks.
The states with spikes in coronavirus cases include:
- North Carolina
- South Carolina
If any of the 5,000 Nation employees do travel to one of these states, they will be required to quarantine for 14 days before returning to work.
This is the latest addition to the Nation’s ‘Safer Together’ plan that was implemented when casinos reopened on June 10.
Other measures include requiring face masks, limiting visitors to those that live within 120 miles and capacity limits in certain areas.
