NEW YORK (WCBS 880) — Five states have been added to the Tri-State area's travel advisory.

People coming in from Arizona, Minnesota, Nevada, Rhode Island, and Wyoming must now quarantine for 14 days upon arrival in New York, New Jersey and Connecticut.

No areas have been removed from the list.

The quarantine rule 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.  

"For a clear example of the continuing extent of the COVID crisis in America, look no further than New York's travel advisory list. The virus' spread across the country—new cases have increased more than 15 percent in the last 10 days—makes it all the more urgent that we stay vigilant here at home," said Gov. Andrew Cuomo, who released the updated list on Tuesday. "That's why New Yorkers need to continue wearing masks, socially distancing and washing their hands in conjunction with the careful enforcement of local governments. We can defeat this virus by staying New York Tough, but we have a long way to go."
