CUOMO announces Covid-19 testing mandate for people travelling to New York
Gov. Andrew Cuomo announced the new mandate on Saturday, October 31, requiring anyone arriving in New York to have tested negative for coronavirus three days before arrival.
In addition, once in New York, travellers will be required to self-isolate for three days and take a further Covid-19 test on the fourth day.
“There’ll be no quarantine list, there’ll be no metrics,” Cuomo said during a press conference.
Prior to the new ruling, all out-of-state travellers were required to quarantine for 14 days if arriving from a coronvirus hotspot. The changes come as New York itself appears to be on the brink of becoming a hotspot, with 9.9 new cases per 100’000 people being reported over a seven-day period.
The border states of Connecticut, Pennsylvania and New Jersey will remain exempt from New York’s restrictions because of the high frequency of interstate travel daily by workers.
