Syracuse, New York-Governor Andrew Cuomo today canceled the growing list of quarantine travel and introduced new testing requirements for people entering New York from other states.
Cuomo said, instead, all people entering New York must carry evidence of a negative coronavirus test. The test must be performed within three days of entering the state.
But this is not all.
Passengers must be quarantined for three days after entering New York. On the fourth day, the traveler must take the exam again.
He said that once the second test result is negative, the person will no longer be isolated.
If the passenger is not checked, then he or she must be quarantined 1
Cuomo said people who leave the state only 24 hours will follow different requirements.
He said that for those short trips, the person must get a negative test within four days of returning to New York.
Cuomo said the rule does not apply to neighboring states (New Jersey, Pennsylvania or Connecticut).
Cuomo said the new regulations will be implemented at the airport or local health officials.
At the time of this change, New York cases are on the rise. Today, the state confirmed more than 2,000 new coronavirus cases for the fourth consecutive day:
- Daily test results on Friday: 2049
- Thursday: 2259
- Wednesday: 2499
- Tuesday: 2031
The results of Friday’s case were based on 136,962 tests. The positive rate was 1.49%.
1,121 people across the state were hospitalized today.
Cuomo said eight more people died on Friday. Since March, the state has reported 25,807 deaths.
The daily positive test rate in downtown New York was 1.9% on Friday, down from 2.4% on Thursday.
According to state data, the 7-day positive rate in this area is 1.5%.
New quarantine requirements are also coming as Thanksgiving Day approaches.
“Thanksgiving will become complicated,” Cuomo said. College students will return home. The family gathers together. He said that even small groups with their loved ones may have problems.
He said: “People think that if they are with someone they know, they will be safe.” “Just because they are your family does not mean they are safe from Covid.”
