New York’s governor Andrew Cuomo has just upped the ante for any North Carolina resident traveling to New York.
NC visitors must now provide their complete contact information upon arrival or face a fine of $2,000.
NY is issuing an emergency health order:
Out-of-state travelers from designated high-COVID states must provide their contact information upon arrival.
If you fail to provide it, you will receive a summons with a $2K fine.
We’re serious about enforcing quarantine.

According to the new police, New York is now forcing all visitors from “designated high-COVID states” (who have a positive test rate of 10 per 100,000 residents or a seven-day rolling average of 10% positive tests) to submit their information for a mandatory 14-day quarantine.
As of yesterday, the new rule applies to a total of 16 states, including North and South Carolina, Florida, and Georgia.
What do you think about the new policy?
