Nevada and California travelers added to New York quarantine list
RENO, Nev. (KOLO) - Nevada and California have been added to New York’s quarantine list, New York Governor Andrew Cuomo announced Tuesday morning.
The two Western states are new additions to a list that now contains 16 states, which asks travelers to self-quarantine for 14 days.
The travel quarantine was announced on June 24 and it applies to anyone entering the Tri-State (NY, New Jersey and Connecticut) region, including New Yorkers returning home.
The new list is also including Georgia, Iowa, Idaho, Louisiana, Mississippi, and Tennessee.
The previous eight states on that list announced last week are Alabama, Arkansas, Arizona, Florida, North Carolina, South Carolina, Texas and Utah.
The Associated Press reports Gov. Cuomo has warned that those out-of-state travelers could lead to a rise in infections.
