New York Now Requiring Visitors to Have Proof of Negative Virus Test

Coming to the Empire State? Better have your papers…

Welcome to the dystopian nightmare that we’ve all been waiting for.

Well, maybe that was a bit of a stretch.  This is more like the preamble to dystopia, where all of the things that the characters in grim sci-fi movies grumble about are being established.

The strict new mandate — which exempts New Jersey, Connecticut and Pennsylvania residents — eliminates the governor’s quarantine advisory list, which restricted travel from over 40 coronavirus hotspots across the country.

Now, travelers must show proof of a negative test taken within three days of arriving in the Empire State, and must also quarantine for three more days — and get a new COVID-19 test on the fourth.

But if you’re unlucky enough to get sick, let’s hope you have some television to catch up on.

If that’s positive, they must isolate for two weeks, the governor said at an Albany press briefing.

Governor Cuomo’s handling of the COVID-19 pandemic has come under heavy criticism from President Trump as of late, particularly on account of the Empire State leader’s controversial decision to send pandemic patients into nursing homes early in the first wave.
