Governor Cuomo Considering Two-Week Quarantine For Florida Visitors
During Governor Andrew Cuomo's Thursday press conference, he made remarks that raised eyebrows for those who travel to New York State from Florida.
According to WGRZ, Governor Cuomo said he is considering the possibility of requiring visitors that are traveling from Florida to quarantine for 14 days once entering New York State.
"I have had experts who have advised me to do that. I am considering it now, Cuomo said.
Governor Cuomo went on to speak about the possibility of requiring this quarantine for Florida visitors.
"In some ways, you want to talk about a full 180, for those people who don't remember back to day one, Florida and other states imposed a quarantine on New Yorkers. If you went to Florida, you had to quarantine for two weeks, because they were afraid New Yorkers were bringing the virus to their state," Cuomo said. "Fast forward 100 days, now we're afraid they're bringing the virus to our state."
Florida has seen a spike in COVID-19 cases in recent weeks, while New York has posted some of the best virus numbers in the country lately.
I know many people who are from Buffalo, now reside in Florida, so this would be big news if it does happen, which it hasn't yet but is being considered.
