New York quarantines visitors. New York State will begin to require travelers to visit this region Northeastern United States who present recent proof of COVID-19, carried out in the three days prior to the trip and that a new test is made after spending three days in quarantine after arrival.

“If you come to the state of New York, you must have tested negative in the previous three days and you must take a test three days after your arrival in New York, “said the governor Andrew Cuomo.

The governor offered a press conference in which he indicated that if the new analysis is negative, the visitor will not have to comply with the 14-day isolation currently imposed.

The governor explained that the application of this new policy responds to the current situation of the pandemic in the country and in much of the world.

So far, the monitoring and the mandatory nature of quarantine was linked to the positivity rate in coronavirus tests from the area of ​​origin of the traveler.

But given the high spread of COVID-19 in the United States, the authorities had imposed a mandatory 14-day quarantine on people from virtually every state in the country.

With the new measure, the current system that requires quarantine only people from the areas registered in the list prepared by the authorities will disappear since it will be applied to all travelers, regardless of their origin.

Likewise, Cuomo pointed out that New Yorkers who are out of the state for less than 24 hours should have an analysis within four days of their return, without the need for a prior test.

“By itself it is not a number that overwhelms us, but it is growth that worries me and we cannot allow this number to continue growing,” said the mayor of the Big Apple at a press conference in which he asked New Yorkers that they refrain from traveling, especially by plane.

The mayor pointed out that in the last two weeks the positivity index has been fluctuating between 1.5 percent and 1.75 percent and that for the first time this figure was registered, which is still low compared to other states in the country.

In his appearance today, De Blasio assured that the increase cannot be attributed to a single factor, such as the reopening of the interior rooms of the restaurants with a limited capacity of 25%.

“My impression is that we are seeing something widespread,” said the mayor, who identified restaurants, bars and nightclubs as the areas of greatest concern, “as well as areas of Brooklyn and Queens where restrictive measures were recently imposed after detecting outbreaks of the illness.

Since the detection of the first coronavirus cases, 23,980 people have died in the city and 253,777 have been infected, according to the Health Department.
