Glad I do not live anywhere near New York or California…….
Gov. Andrew Cuomo is upping the ante on the state’s quarantine advisory, now requiring travelers from hotspot states to submit a form with their contact information and where they’ll spend their 14-day isolation.
Failure to submit that form may result in a $2,000 fine; violators may also be summoned for a hearing and subject to mandatory quarantine; the requirements now apply to travelers from 22 hotspot states.
Cuomo announced the new state health emergency order Monday, saying noncompliance from out-of-state travelers was contributing to new COVID clusters in New York; that compounds the compliance problem locally.
A man accused of shooting scores of people at a Texas Walmart last summer was indicted Thursday on new federal hate crime and gun charges following the death of another person injured in the attack.
