COVID-19: NYC Quote of the Day 2020-06-24

Wednesday, June 24, 2020, NYS Gov. Cuomo - People From High Infection Rate States Must Quarantine for 14 Days

We have to make sure the virus doesn't come in on a plane again. We learned that lesson. Been there, done that.

We're announcing today a joint travel advisory. People coming in from states that have a high infection rate must quarantine for 14 days. It's only for the simple reason that we worked very hard to get the viral transmission rate down. We don't want to see it go up because a lot of people come into this region and they could literally bring the infection with them. It wouldn't be malicious or malevolent, but it would still be real.

We are jointly instituting that travel advisory today because what happens in New York happens in New Jersey, happens in Connecticut. I think it's right, I think it's smart, and I'm glad that we're doing it together. We've done a lot of good things together and hopefully we're on the other side of this mountain and we'll continue to see the numbers go down and we'll continue to see the economic activity go up.
