New York Requires Quarantine for Travelers From Eight States as U.S. Coronavirus Cases Reach Record High

The state of New York announced Wednesday it will begin requiring travelers from eight states where the number of coronavirus cases are surging to quarantine for 14 days. The new measure singles out visitors and New York residents arriving from Alabama, Arizona, Arkansas, Florida, North Carolina, South Carolina, Texas, and Utah. Neighboring New Jersey and Connecticut are suggesting a quarantine for people who are arriving from the hard hit states, but acknowledged they do not have an enforcement mechanism to compel compliance. In New York, Gov. Andrew Cuomo says a failure to quarantine is punishable by fines that could run into the thousands of dollars.
