During a briefing on Monday, Gov. Andrew Cuomo issued an emergency order requiring travelers flying to New York from designated high-risk states to provide contact information when entering the state.

In order to help enforce quarantining, all state airports will issue paperwork to travelers starting today, Cuomo said.

Those who do not comply could receive a summons with $2,000 fine. They could also face a mandatory-quarantine.

“None of this is pleasant, but we’ve gone through this before,” Cuomo said.

  1. My cousins are expecting to visit NY from Israel after Tisha Ba’av. Will they impacted as well? I know Israel has a mandatory 14 quarantine sentence for all foreign entries. Will this be the same? Also, they’re coming to us in Passaic. Will Jersey follow NY? Does anyone know?
