Illinois, Kentucky, Minnesota, Puerto Rico and Washington, D.C. met the metrics Tuesday to qualify for the travel advisory requiring individuals who have traveled to New York from those areas, all of which have significant community spread, to quarantine for 14 days.

No states have been removed. The quarantine applies to any person arriving from an area with a positive test rate higher than 10 per 100,000 residents over a 7-day rolling average or an area with a 10 percent or higher positivity rate over a 7-day rolling average.

"Our job is to do everything we can to control COVID and anticipate possible future issues, and in that regard, the issues we watch are the infection rates spreading across the country and compliance with the rules that we now have in place across the state," Governor Cuomo said. "The situation across the nation is still very bad and there are more states that have exceeded our thresholds for quarantine."

"New York State has one of the lowest infection rates in the U.S.," Governor Cuomo continued. "We have a full Department of Health protocol system in place, and I offer to the MLB, if you are having problems playing in other states, come play here - we will set up a health protocol."

The governor also updated New Yorkers on the state's investigation into a concert in Southampton that received widespread press and social media attention. Yesterday, New York State Health Commissioner Dr. Howard Zucker sent a letter to the Town of Southampton requesting information on the concert within 24 hours and advising the town that New York State will conduct an investigation and assess the penalties associated with any violations of public health laws or regulations.
