NEW YORK (1010 WINS) -- The most populous state in the U.S. -- California -- has been added to New York and New Jersey's 14-day quarantine travel advisory list, Gov. Andrew Cuomo and Gov. Phil Murphy each announced Tuesday afternoon.
No states or U.S. territories were removed from the list, which typically applies to Connecticut, as well, but there is yet to be a formal announcement.
Massachusetts is on New Jersey's list, but not on New York's list. And Delaware is on New York's list but not New Jersey.
Murphy's office said in a statement, "Massachusetts will be included on New Jersey's advisory, but neither New York’s or Connecticut’s based on the same criteria."
But in announcing the addition of California to the travel advisory, Cuomo's office said, "Neighboring state Massachusetts now meets the criteria for the travel advisory, in addition to Connecticut, New Jersey and Pennsylvania - however, given the interconnected nature of the region and mode of transport between the states, a quarantine on these states is not practically viable."
The statement continued, "That said, New York State highly discourages, to the extent practical, non-essential travel between Connecticut, New Jersey, Massachusetts and Pennsylvania while they meet the travel advisory criteria."
Murphy said in a statement, "Cases have continued to increase at alarming rates, in our state and across the country and it is imperative that we keep the spread of COVID-19 under control. It remains our top priority to ensure the safety of New Jersey residents, and we ask individuals arriving from these 41 states to get tested for COVID-19 and self-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 7-day rolling average or an area with a 10 percent or higher positivity rate over a 7-day rolling average.
