Six states removed from NY quarantine list
Gover also says he wouldn't not ban trick-or-treating on Halloween
Coronavirus infections rates have fallen enough for six locations to be removed from the mandatory quarantine list, Gov. Andrew Cuomo announced Tuesday.
He removed California, Hawaii, Maryland, Minnesota, Nevada, Northern Mariana Islands and Ohio. Puerto Rico was put back on the list.
In addition, in a TV interview Tuesday morning, Cuomo said he would not cancel Halloween trick-or-treating.
“I would not ban trick-or-treaters going door to door. I don’t think that’s appropriate. You have neighbors — if you want to go knock on your neighbor’s door, God bless you and I’m not going to tell you not to,” he said. “If you want to go for a walk with your child through the neighborhood, I’m not gonna tell you you can’t take your child to the neighborhood, I’m not going to do that — I’ll give you my advice and guidance and then you will make a decision what you do that night.”
He has not yet issued that advice and guidance.
The complete list of locations from which travelers must quarantine for 14 days after reaching New York state are Alabama, Alaska, Arkansas, Delaware, Florida, Georgia, Guam, Iowa, Idaho, Illinois, Indiana, Kansas, Kentucky, Louisiana, Missouri, Mississippi, Montana, North Carolina, North Dakota, Nebraska, Oklahoma, Puerto Rico, South Carolina, South Dakota, Tennessee, Texas, Utah, Virginia, Wisconsin and West Virginia.
