Andrew Cuomo institutes mandatory COVID-19 testing for all visitors to New York

October 31, 2020

I guess that HIPAA laws are no longer valid. At least not in New York, where visitors are going to be required to show a negative COVID-19 test result before entering the State. Once in the State you must then undergo a mandatory three day house arrest followed by a second negative test before you are allowed to proceed to your business in the State. Or you can simply undergo a fourteen day house arrest upon entering New York if you just happen to have that much time. Here is more:

The newly unveiled quarantine policy will do away with the current Tri-State Travel Advisory list, and now mandates that anyone visiting the state must test negative or quarantine for 14 days with the exception of residents from contiguous states New Jersey, Connecticut and Pennsylvania.

“There will be no quarantine list, there will be no metrics,” Cuomo said. “If you are coming into New York within three days you must have tested negative. Once you arrive in New York, you must quarantine for three days and can take a test on the fourth day.”

Travelers must also have proof that they tested negative upon arrival, and must quarantine for three days.

Is this even feasible? Are they going to set up roadblock on every road which enters New York to pull over travelers with out of State plates?

Show me your papers…

    I am so glad I live in Florida. We don’t have all of those silly rules.

    Funny how this asshat only wants borders at his state line. Given how easy it is to get into the US, I can’t imagine New York will be any harder.

    With Mid-Town Manhattan boarded up in anticipation of the coming election riots who other than Soros paid mercenaries would bother to come?

      There is certainly nobody coming in for tourist or for pleasure reasons, might as well make sure anybody who might come in on business says screw it as well…

        I have to imagine there will be hundreds of businesses, maybe thousands, that will not return if this ever ends. There really is no reason to if they can work from home and set up the home base in a more tax friendly state.
