The advisory will also effect travel from Washington, D.C., and Puero Rico, according to a media conference call with New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo.
“Our job is to make sure we are doing everything we can to control COVID and anticipate any potential issues,” Cuomo told reporters Tuesday. “If we get lazy, if we get sloppy, you’ll see the numbers go up.”
The advisory's 14-day self-quarantine requirement applies to any person arriving from a state with a positive test rate higher than 10 per 100,000 residents during a seven-day rolling average or a state with a 10 percent or higher positivity rate during a seven-day rolling average.
Cuomo said earlier this month that those visiting New York who fail to comply with the requirement could face a $2,000 fine.
Roughly 57,000 tests were conducted statewide Monday, and the infection rate was .93 percent, Cuomo said. Nine New Yorkers died from the coronavirus, 648 New Yorkers were hospitalized and 81 people were intubated, the lowest number since March 15.
New Jersey Gov. Phil Murphy, on the other hand, said he will not consider fining people who travel from high-risk states, noting the advisory is voluntary in the state, although he is "demanding" that people follow the quarantine rules.
"New Jersey's restart and recovery process relies on our collective effort and commitment to beating COVID-19 and driving down rates of transmission across our state," Murphy said in a statement. "Individuals traveling from these states must remain vigilant in their actions and proactively get a COVID-19 test and self-quarantine to prevent additional outbreaks from spreading throughout New Jersey."
Muprhy announced Tuesday that New Jersey had 565 new confirmed cases and 24 new deaths, the highest one-day total for July and third time in four days that 500 new cases were reported, bringing the death toll to 15,825 confirmed and probable fatalities and 180,295 total cases in the five-month outbreak in the state.
Meanwhile, Connecticut Gov. Ned Lamont said the state conducted 31,960 tests over the weekend with 207 new confirmed cases, a 0.65% positivity rate. There were five coronavirus-related deaths while 59 patients have been hospitalized.
Out-of-state travelers who fail to comply with Connecticut's rule could face a $1,000 fine.
