Individuals visiting New York State from Delaware, Kansas and Oklahoma will be required to quarantine for 14 days, Gov. Andrew Cuomo announced in a statement Tuesday morning.
“The quarantine applies to any person arriving from a state with a positive test rate higher than 10 per 100,000 residents over a 7-day rolling average or a state with a 10 percent or higher positivity rate over a 7-day rolling average," the statement said.
The three states are among 19 that meet the metrics to qualify for the traveler quarantine advisory.
Some context: There were 10 coronavirus-related deaths recorded in New York on Monday, bringing the statewide death toll to 24,924.
At least 588 of the 56,736 coronavirus tests conducted Monday were positive (1.04%), according to Cuomo’s office.
