New York City reported zero COVID-19 deaths for 3 straight days – now it’s setting up checkpoints for visitors


New York’s Governor Andrew Cuomo announced Tuesday that New York City had no COVID-19 deaths for three straight days. There were only three COVID-19 deaths in the entire state on Monday. Despite the progress, the governor issued a stark warning for residents to continue to take the virus seriously — and the city announced it’s setting up checkpoints to inform visitors of quarantine rules.

“Our progress in New York is even better than we expected, thanks to the hard work of New Yorkers,” Cuomo said in a statement. “But we must protect that progress, which is why today we are adding another state to our travel advisory. We cannot go back to the hell we experienced just a few months ago — and surging infection rates across the country threaten to bring us back there — so we must all remain vigilant.”

The governor has ordered a mandatory 14-day quarantine for people traveling to New York from other states with high rates of infections. Visitors coming from 35 states are currently affected. While Delaware and Washington, D.C. were removed from the list, Rhode Island was added on Tuesday. US SPREAD GOOD NEWS!
