Three states added to New York’s travel quarantine list; hot spots still an issue

This story was reported by Catherine Carrera, Matthew Chayes, Bart Jones, David Reich-Hale, Joie Tyrrell and John Valenti. It was written by Jones.

Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo said Tuesday that Ohio, Michigan and Virginia were added to the list of states and territories with high levels of COVID-19 infection and from which travelers must quarantine for 14 days upon arrival here.

No places were removed from the list, which numbers more than 30 states and territories.

More schools on Long Island responded to new cases, while New York City schools reported a “really encouraging” result from recent testing, New York City Mayor de Blasio said Tuesday.

The positivity level from tests completed Monday across all of New York was measured at 1.2% outside of the “micro-clusters” the state is targeting, but rose to 4.13% in about 20 “hot spots” that the state is targeting in Brooklyn and Queens, along with Rockland and Orange counties.

States/regions in red are included on New York’s travel advisory list as of Oct. 13, 2020. Guam and Puerto Rico, not pictured, are also on the list.

The “red zone” level for neighborhoods with the most cases was up from the 3.7% the day before. Those areas are home to 2.8% of the state’s population, yet had 12.3% of all positive cases reported Monday to the state, Cuomo said.

“Our numbers overall continue to remain steady, despite the micro-clusters that have popped up in certain pockets of the state. Our strategy is to continue to identify these clusters if and when they pop up, get even more refined in our targeting and attack them as needed,” Cuomo said.

Eleven state residents died of coronavirus-related causes on Monday, and 923 people were hospitalized with the virus — an increase of 45 people from the previous day.

The positivity level for new confirmed virus cases was 1.1% on Long Island and 1.3% in New York City. The number was 101 in Nassau County, 68 in Suffolk County and 545 in New York City.

State Liquor Authority agents and State Police inspected 470 establishments on Monday and issued summonses to three of them — all in Nassau County — for violating state laws on mask-wearing and social distancing.

New York City found only one positive case of COVID-19 in public schools from random tests conducted on 1,751 people, including students and staff, at 56 schools.

The random tests began last Friday, de Blasio said Tuesday morning at his daily news conference, and the schools started to reopen last month for in-person classes.

“That’s really, really encouraging, and it says how important it is to constantly keep a lookout, and constantly focus on testing,” de Blasio said.

As part of a deal with the city teachers’ labor union, de Blasio agreed to a randomized, monthly testing

The actress went public with her relationship with Busch in September by sharing a sweet photo of the two boarding a helicopter alongside Helen Mirren and Kate Beckinsale. The couple made their red carpet debut shortly after when they attended the Monte-Carlo Gala For Planetary Health in Monaco.

“This is the first guy she’s met who is a match for her humor and personality. Someone who has his own life and success and isn’t intimidated by her,” a source recently told PEOPLE. “He’s entrepreneurial and they’re both very business-minded.”

In addition to finding love, 2020 has seen big changes for Wilson after she declared it her “Year of Health” and began documenting her weight loss journey on social media.

Earlier this month, Wilson shared with fans that was about 6 lbs. away from her goal weight of 165 lbs.

“Happy Sunday everyone! Gearing up for a great week ahead,” she wrote in an Oct. 4 Instagram post. “This week was super busy but I got up super early 3 times (6am 😜) and went on a hike…even did a couple of 100m sprints to get the heart rate even higher (although my ‘sprint’ is probably someone else’s ‘slow jog’ 😝) but I felt proud of myself and now only 3kg’s away
