Andrew Cuomo Cracks Down On Out-Of-State Visitors

If visitors to New York fail to report, they will face a fine of $2,000. 

On Monday, Governor Andrew Cuomo tweeted that out-of-state visitors from “designated high-COVID states” must submit contact information once they arrive. If visitors fail to report, they will face a fine of $2,000. 

He further explained the emergency health order to reporters, stating, “if you leave the airport without providing the information, you will receive a summons immediately with a $2,000 fine… If you leave the airport without filling out the information, not only can you have a $2,000 fine, you can then be brought to a hearing and ordered to complete mandatory quarantine."

Airlines will hand out forms before landing in New York for visitors to provide a location where they will quarantine. The forms are also available online. 

According to statistics from Johns Hopkins University, New York state has 32,395 deaths from the coronavirus. As of yesterday, New York City alone has 216,199 confirmed cases and 18,708 confirmed deaths from the coronavirus. 

However, Mayor Bill de Blasio announced on Monday that New York City has its first 24 hours without a COVID-19 death this past Saturday. This is one piece of good news in a country that recently saw an uptick in cases across many states, including Florida and Texas.
