Travelers who arrive in New York from states with a high number of coronavirus cases will need to fill out some paperwork, or face a penalty.
Officials say anyone who lands at an Empire State airport has to reveal their travel plans. If they refuse, they could be fined two-thousand dollars. The State Health Department says the requirement is needed after thousands of travelers declined to fill out the forms voluntarily.
In Upstate airports, the regulation will be enforced by peace officers and State Police.
On Tuesday, Governor Cuomo announced that travelers coming in from an additional four states will be added to the list of those requiring the quarantine. Those states are: Minnesota, New Mexico, Ohio and Wisconsin. Delaware has now been removed from the list.
