NEW JERSEY - A joint incoming travel advisory has been announced by New Jersey Governor Murphy, New York Governor Andrew M. Cuomo and Connecticut Governor Ned Lamont.
The joint incoming travel advisory states that individuals traveling from states with significant community spread of COVID-19, must quarantine for a 14 day period, the governor's announced in a joint statement. This quarantine - effective midnight on June 24 - applies to any person arriving from a state with a positive test rate higher than 10 per 100,000 residents over a 7-day rolling average or a state with a 10% or higher positivity rate over a 7-day rolling average, they said.
The tri-state measure will use uniform parameters and messaging on highways, airports, websites and social media across the three states. The three states will also ask hotels to communicate the 14-day quarantine to guests who have traveled from one of the impacted states.
As of yesterday when the advisory went into effect, the advisory applies to Alabama, Arkansas, Arizona, Florida, North Carolina, South Carolina, Utah and Texas. New Jersey, New York and Connecticut will continually update and publish on their respective websites a list of states to which the new advisory applies. This information will be updated regularly.
"Over the course of the past few months, our states have taken aggressive action to flatten the curve and beat back the coronavirus," Governor Murphy said, "As a result of our collective efforts, we have low infection rates, falling hospitalizations, and have steadily been reopening our economies. Unfortunately many states continue to have high transmission rates. We are proud to work with our partners in New York and Connecticut on a joint incoming travel advisory to ensure continued progress against this virus and to keep residents of the tri-state area safe."
