ALBANY, N.Y. (WSYR-TV) — New York State Gov. Andrew Cuomo held a telephone conference on Tuesday where he clarified outdoor dining recommendations and also added 10 more states to the travel advisory, bringing the list to 31 states where travelers need to self-quarantine after traveling from. Those travelers will be asked to fill out a form at the airport detailing their travel plans. The form can also be filled out online here.
Tuesday, Cuomo clarified that the state did not allow bars to open, and only opened up outdoor dining as an option. Cuomo reiterated again that bars tend to have people congregating, which is a violation of social distancing orders. Cuomo said that he understands that businesses are just trying to open, but social distancing needs to be followed. Cuomo also said that local governments need to comply and help enforce regulations.
Also on Tuesday, Cuomo announced that ten more states were on the travel ban, while Minnesota was taken off the list. The states added include:
- North Dakota
Before he ended the call, Cuomo was asked a question about college athletics. He said that crowds could not be in attendance, as that would be considered a large social gathering. However, athletics could be played and be televised without fans.
