New York (WQOW) - New York's governor has added Wisconsin to the ever-growing list of states under a travel advisory - meaning those who travel to the Empire State will need to quarantine in place for 14 days.
Wisconsin and Minnesota were among four states added to the list in Tuesday. That brings New York's list to 22 states total.
Governor Andrew Cuomo has put the quarantine order on anyone coming from a state with a positive test rate higher than 10 per 100,000 residents over a seven-day rolling average or a state with a 10% or higher positivity rate over a seven-day rolling average
"New Yorkers showed incredible courage and resiliency throughout this pandemic, and nowhere is their work more evident than in the numbers we release every day, including in New York City, once a global hotspot," Governor Cuomo said. "However, the success of our efforts depends on citizens' willingness to comply with state guidance, socially distance, wear masks and wash their hands, and rising cases around the country continue to threaten our progress, which is why four new states have been added to New York's travel advisory."
The full, updated list of states on the travel advisory is below:
- North Carolina
- New Mexico
- South Carolina
