Earlier today, we reported New Jersey added several states to its travel advisory which now includes California.
Now its neighboring state, New York, has also put travelers under a new advisement. Upon returning from any states that have experienced a large spike in cases recently, residents or visitors will need to self-quarantine for two weeks — including California as well.
So far, California officials have been unable to discuss moving forward with Disneyland’s proposed reopening. While Downtown Disney is still set to reopen on July 9th, the reopenings of Anaheim’s Disneyland theme parks and hotels have been delayed. According to Disney, “The State of California has indicated that it will not issue theme park reopening guidelines until sometime after July 4th.”
And just today, New York Governor Andrew Cuomo has imposed a new 14-day quarantine order on all travelers from California as well as seven additional states.
“Eight more states have reached the level of spread required to qualify for New York’s travel advisory, meaning we will now require individuals traveling to New York from those states to quarantine for 14 days,” Cuomo stated.
The metrics to determine which states are being added to the travel advisory include the same criteria that were issued last week when Alabama, Arkansas, Arizona, Florida, North Carolina, South Carolina, Texas, and Utah were put on the list. In addition to California, travelers entering New York from Georgia, Iowa, Idaho, Louisiana, Mississippi, Nevada, and Tennessee are also being asked to quarantine.
We’ll continue to monitor this situation closely and report back with more findings.
