Quarantines on the Rise

Quarantines on the Rise

(TargetLiberty.org) – Three more states have introduced quarantines on travelers from areas seeing spikes in Chinese coronavirus infections. In a joint three-state press conference Wednesday, New York, New Jersey and Connecticut governors each announced new restrictions on travel to their states.

According to Governor Cuomo (D-NY), the same rules will apply across the tri-state area, with each state responsible for enforcing them on its own territory. The criteria for quarantine is for a state to have a new infection rate of ten per 100,000 residents, or a total rate of 10% of the state population, over a 7-day rolling average. If a state breaks those limits, travelers from the states will need to quarantine themselves for 14 days on arrival in New York, New Jersey or Connecticut.
