As the number of COVID-19 infections in certain states continues to rise, so does the number of states added to the tristate area travel advisory. Eight additional states were added to the existing list, including the following: California, Georgia, Iowa, Idaho, Louisiana, Mississippi, Nevada and Tennessee. Travelers from these states, as well as Alabama, Arkansas, Arizona, Florida, North Carolina, South Carolina, Texas, and Utah, will be required to quarantine for 14 days when going to New York, New Jersey, or Connecticut.
