ALBANY, NY —  Governor Andrew M. Cuomo today announced that New Mexico has been added to New York State’s COVID-19 travel advisory. No areas have been removed. The advisory requires individuals who have traveled to New York from areas with significant community spread to quarantine for 14 days. The quarantine applies to any person arriving from an area with a positive test rate higher than 10 per 100,000 residents over a 7-day rolling average or an area with a 10 percent or higher positivity rate over a 7-day rolling average.

“Mass gatherings cause infections, which cause a cluster; a cluster causes community spread – that is the natural evolution of things unless we intervene and stop the cycle,” Governor Cuomo said. “We’ve seen it in colleges, factory settings around the country, in apple plants around New York, a single restaurant on Long Island – we’ve even seen in the Rose Garden that mass gatherings spread this virus. We’re seeing clusters now in several areas in the state and we have to stop the spread before we go backwards on the progress we’ve made.”

In the top 20 ZIP codes in areas that have seen recent outbreaks – Brooklyn, Queens and Rockland and Orange Counties – 5,222 tests were conducted, yielding 291 positives or a 5.5 percent positivity rate. In the remainder of the state, 91,137 tests were conducted yielding 1,102 positives or a 1.20 percent positivity rate.

New York State continues to track clusters with a particular focus on areas where there are hot spot, cluster situations. Within the top 20 ZIP codes in counties with recent outbreaks – Brooklyn, Queens and Rockland and Orange Counties – the average rate of positive tests is 5.5 percent. The rate of positive tests for the remainder of New York State, not counting these 20 ZIP codes, is 1.20 percent. These 20 ZIP codes contained 21 percent of all positive cases in New York State yesterday, but represent only 6.9 percent of the state’s population.

New York State is conducting focused testing in areas in hot spot communities, predominately in Brooklyn and Queens and Rockland and Orange Counties.
