NY to require travelers from Florida, other virus stricken states, to provide contact info or face $2,000 fine

NEW YORK (WSVN) — Visitors headed to New York from virus-stricken states, like Florida, may face a hefty fine if they don’t adhere to certain rules.

New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo announced that the state is issuing an emergency health order requiring out-of-state travelers from high-COVID-19 states to provide their contact information upon arrival.

Cuomo said those who fail to do so will receive a summons with a $2,000 fine.

“We’re serious about enforcing quarantine,” Cuomo said.

Among the states included in the order are Florida, Arizona, Texas, California, Georgia and more.

This order comes on the same day Florida reported 12,624 cases of the virus.
