Governor Andrew Cuomo says a second wave in New York is inevitable. It’s just a matter of how hard it hits. Now, more than half of America is on New York State’s Quarantine List. Just two new fatalities were reported overnight within the state of New York. Although, one was removed, ten new states were added Tuesday, July 21st which takes the number of states to 31.
New York Governor Cuomo, Connecticut Governor Ned Lamomt and New Jersey Governor Phil Murphy jointly implemented the restricted travel list last month. The effort is to slow the spike of Coronavirus. According to NBC News 4 in New York, the restrictions apply to states that exceed 10% daily COVID-19 test positivity rates (10 new cases per 100,000 residents) over a seven-day rolling period.
