NY, NJ, CT add Alaska, Delaware to mandatory quarantine list

NEW YORK (WABC) — New York, New Jersey and Connecticut have added two states back to the list of areas from which travelers are required to quarantine for 14 days.

Alaska, which was removed last week, and Delaware, which has been added and removed several times, are back on the Tri-State Travel Advisory, which now stands at 33 states and two territories.

New York plans to levy a $2,000 fine against certain travelers who leave airports in the state without submitting a form that says where they are arriving from and where they’re going.

“New York State is moving forward in the face of a continuing crisis throughout the nation and around the world,” Cuomo said. ‘We’ve gone from one of the nation’s worst infection rates to one of its best and have an infection rate below 1% for the 11th straight day, but that’s no excuse for getting complacent as we add two more states to our travel advisory. Our success in this fight is determined, more than anything, by the actions each of us takes in daily life — washing our hands, properly social distancing and wearing masks — and by the willingness of local governments to be competent partners and to enforce state guidance. We continue to move in the right direction, but it’s up to all of us to slow the spread and stay safe.”

There are currently 33 states and two territories on the list, including:
–Alabama
–Alaska
–Arkansas
–Arizona
–California
–Delaware
–Florida
–Georgia
–Hawaii
–Iowa
–Idaho
–Illinois
