New York, New Jersey and Connecticut announced Wednesday they are issuing a joint travel advisory requiring travelers from states with high coronavirus infection rates to quarantine for 14 days.

New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D) announced the move at a joint press conference with New Jersey Gov. Phil Murphy (D) and Connecticut Gov. Ned Lamont (D). The three governors are from states that were hit extremely hard hit by the virus and say they now want to guard against their progress being reversed by travelers from other states.

The advisory applies to people arriving from states with an infection rate above 10 cases per 100,000 people on a 7-day rolling average.

As of now, that means the advisory applies to travelers from Alabama, Arkansas, Arizona, Florida, North Carolina, South Carolina, Washington, Utah and Texas, Cuomo said.
