Cuomo Refuses To Respond To New CDC Guidelines


The Center for Disease Control and Prevention dropped its recommendation of a 14-day quarantine for travelers returning from overseas or out of state trips during the coronavirus pandemic.

The governors of New York, New Jersey, and Connecticut have yet to comment. These three states still have the two-week quarantine requirements for travelers coming from 35 different states and territories.

Fox News reached out to the offices of Govs. Andrew Cuomo, Phil Murphy, and Ned Lamont, but they have yet to respond.

On the CDC's website, the guidelines have been clearly updated but even thought the two-week recommendation was changed, the federal agency still warns travelers that they are still vulnerable to the virus while traveling.

The agency made the statement, "You may feel well and not have any symptoms, but you can still spread COVID-19 to others. You and your travel companions (including children) may spread COVID-19 to other people including your family, friends, and community for 14 days after you were exposed to the virus."

There are still recommendations for travelers to wear a mask while in public, wash hands thoroughly, maintain social distancing, and monitor themselves for any symptoms of COVID-19.

According to the CDC, traveling will increase your risk of catching and spreading the virus. The best protection for yourself and your family is to stay at home. If you absolutely must travel, the federal health agency suggests that you check the recommendations on government websites for the location you will be traveling to as well as any stops along the way. Requirements could vary by location, with some areas requiring those who have traveled recently to stay home for the full 14 days while others may allow a negative COVID-19 test instead.
