Travelers from states with high infection levels of COVID-19 — such as Florida and Texas — will be required to provide contact information before they leave the airport or face a $2,000 fine, Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo announced Monday.
The emergency health order, issued by the state Department of Health, mandates travelers from those states must provide a location form before they leave the airport, Cuomo said.
“You must give officials at the airport your form as to where you came from and where you are going before you leave the airport,” Cuomo said during a news conference in Manhattan. “It will be enforced in every airport in the State of New York.”
Cuomo, who has already imposed quarantine restrictions on travelers from high-infection states in an agreement with the governors of New Jersey and Connecticut, said the move is needed to keep coronavirus infections from surging once again in New York.
He said starting Tuesday people who leave the airport without providing the information will receive a summons immediately with a $2,000 fine. Travelers arriving from the designated states through other means, including trains and cars, must fill out a form online.
Those who don’t comply can also be brought to a hearing and ordered to complete a mandatory quarantine, he said.
“None of this is pleasant, but we have gone through this before,” Cuomo said.
So far, 19 states have been labeled high-infection states requiring quarantine upon entrance to New York: Alabama, Arkansas, Arizona, California, Delaware, Florida, Georgia, Iowa, Idaho, Kansas, Louisiana, Mississippi, North Carolina, Nevada, Oklahoma, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas and Utah…
