NEW YORK (77 WABC) — Hawaii, South Dakota and the Virgin Islands are now part of the travel advisory list. Individuals are required to quarantine for 14 days upon entering in New York, New Jersey and Connecticut.
Alaska, New Mexico, Ohio and Rhode Island are removed from the list.
“New York went from one of the worst situations in the country, to an example for the rest of the nation to follow,” Governor Cuomo said. “Our numbers continue to remain low and steady, which shows this virus will respond to an approach based on science, not politics.”
The positivity rate remained low yesterday in New York with 77,059 tests resulting in only .86%.
There were six deaths, but ICU patients dropped to a low of 120 and there was a slight uptick in hospitalizations.
Today's update on the numbers:
