Governor Andrew M. Cuomo today announced that six states – California, Hawaii, Maryland, Minnesota, Nevada and Ohio – have been removed from New York State’s Covid-19 travel advisory.

The Northern Mariana Islands have also been removed and Puerto Rico has been added.

“When other states and territories make progress fighting Covid-19, that’s good for New York and while I am glad to see areas removed from the travel advisory list, it still remains far too long,” Cuomo said. “Make no mistake: We must continue to be New York Tough and stay smart. Wearing masks, social distancing and hand washing is what tamed this beast in New York and we must keep it up.”
