(WKBN) — Ohioans can now travel to New York State again without quarantining.
Gov. Andrew Cuomo announced the updated travel advisory for the state on Tuesday, removing Ohio, Alaska, New Mexico, Rhode Island and Washington from its list. The update adds Hawaii, South Dakota and the Virgin Islands to the travel advisory.
Under the advisory, people traveling to New York from the states on the list will have to quarantine for 14 days.
The quarantine applies to any person arriving from an area with a positive test rate higher than 10 per 100,000 residents over a seven-day rolling average or an area with a 10% or higher positivity rate over a seven-day rolling average.
“Our numbers continue to remain low and steady, which shows this virus will respond to an approach based on science, not politics. In order to protect this progress, we must keep up our efforts — we cannot go back to the hell we experienced a few months ago, which is why we are adding Hawaii, South Dakota and Virgin Islands to the travel advisory,” Cuomo said.
