SAN FRANCISCO, Calif. (KRON) — New York, New Jersey, and Connecticut have added California back to its coronavirus quarantine list.
This means any traveler coming to New York from California must quarantine for 14 days upon the arrival.
New York says states are added to the list based upon a seven day rolling average of positive tests in excess of 10%, or a number of positive cases exceeding 10 per 100,000 residents.
California has seen a 5.9% increase in COVID-19 cases over the last two weeks, according to Governor Gavin Newsom on Tuesday.
Nearly all 49 other states are on New York’s quarantine list.
The travel advisory excludes people coming into New York from the mandatory quarantine if they were only passing through one of the states on the list.
