Health Department Notes Rise in Travel-Related COVID-19 Cases

The Allegany County Department of Health would like to caution residents again about travel to or from the portions of the United States currently experiencing an increase in COVID-19 cases.  “Some of our quarantined/isolated contacts and cases have been linked to travel to some of the states listed in Governor Cuomo’s Executive Order.  This order mandates that anyone traveling from one of these 16 states, (Alabama, Arkansas, Arizona, California, Florida, Georgia, Iowa, Idaho, Louisiana, Mississippi, North Carolina, Nevada, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas and Utah), must be placed on precautionary quarantine upon entering New York State.  As the travel season continues to ramp up, we ask that all residents continue to use caution when making plans to other States that may have seen an increase in COVID-19 activity.  Our office would like to remind residents that wearing a mask in public and when not able to maintain a 6ft separation, assists in limiting the spread of COVID-19 and has been studied to reduce the travel of respiratory droplets when sneezing, coughing, or talking,” said Tyler Shaw, Deputy Public Health Director for the Allegany County Department of Health.  “Please consider future travel plans carefully and if you do have to travel, and while away, please use caution, wear a mask anytime you are out in public, practice social distancing (stay 6 feet away from any human that isn’t in your immediate household), and wash your hands frequently or use hand sanitizer while you are traveling.  When you get home, please call our office (585) 268-9250, to be placed on precautionary quarantine and we will give you instructions on how to proceed,” said Shaw.  If any resident has a question about what States may be on this travel advisory list, please check this website for the most up to date information: https://coronavirus.health.ny.gov/covid-19-travel-advisory

06 30 20 Health Dir Ballengee COVID Travel Press Release 06.30.20

New Executive Order Mandates Quarantine for Travel from 16 States

As COVID-19 transmission has reached a very low level in New York, vigilance must be maintained to ensure that New York does not see a surge from states with increasing community transmission of COVID-19. Based upon Governor Cuomo’s Executive Order 205, issued June 25, 2020, the following states now meet the criteria for required quarantine:

Alabama         Arkansas          Arizona                California    Florida                  Georgia          Iowa          Idaho

Louisiana       Mississippi       North Carolina     Nevada        South Carolina      Tennessee      Texas        Utah

This is based upon a seven day rolling average, of positive tests in excess of 10 percent, or number of positive cases exceeding 10 per 100,000 residents.  The travel advisory went into effect at 12:01 a.m. on Thursday, June 25, 2020. If you have traveled from within one of the designated states with significant community spread as defined by the metrics above, you must quarantine when you enter New York for 14 days from the last travel within such designated state.

The requirements of the travel advisory do not apply to any individual passing through designated states for a limited duration (i.e., less than 24 hours) through the course of travel. Examples of such brief passage include but are not limited to: stopping at rest stops for vehicles, buses, and/or trains; or lay-overs for air travel, bus travel, or train travel.

The travel advisory requires all New Yorkers, as well as those visiting from out of state, to take personal responsibility for complying with the advisory in the best interest of public health and safety by calling the Allegany County Department of Health at (585)268-9250 to receive quarantine guidance and paperwork. To file a report of an individual failing to adhere to the quarantine pursuant to the travel advisory, please call 1-833-789-0470 or visit this website: https://mylicense.custhelp.com/app/ask. Individuals may also contact the Allegany County Department of Health.

Essential workers and their employers are expected to comply with previously issued DOH guidance regarding return to work after a suspected or confirmed case of COVID-19 or after the employee had close or proximate contact with a person with COVID-19. Additionally, this guidance may be superseded by more specific industry guidance for a particular industry (e.g., for a nursing home worker, a negative test PCR test will be required before return to work). Consult with your employer regarding whether there is industry-specific guidance that may apply to you. If you are returning from travel to a designated state, and if such travel was for longer than the limited duration outlined above, you are required to quarantine for 14 days, unless you are an essential worker.  Please call the Allegany County Department of Health at (585)268-9250 to determine essential worker guidelines, or with any other questions you may have, or go to https://coronavirus.health.ny.gov/covid-19-travel-advisory.

06 25 20 Health COVID Travel Press Release 06.25.20

New Executive Order Mandates Quarantine for Travel from 8 States

As COVID-19 transmission has reached a very low level in New York, vigilance must be maintained to ensure that New York does not see a surge from states with increasing community transmission of COVID-19. Based upon Governor Cuomo’s Executive Order 205, issued June 25, 2020, the following states meet the criteria for required quarantine:

Alabama       Arkansas       Arizona       Florida       North Carolina       South Carolina       Texas        Utah

This is based upon a seven day rolling average, of positive tests in excess of 10 percent, or number of positive cases exceeding 10 per 100,000 residents.  The travel advisory is effective at 12:01 a.m. on Thursday, June 25, 2020. If you have traveled from within one of the designated states with significant community spread as defined by the metrics above, you must quarantine when you enter New York for 14 days from the last travel within such designated state.

The requirements of the travel advisory do not apply to any individual passing through designated states for a limited duration (i.e., less than 24 hours) through the course of travel. Examples of such brief passage include but are not limited to: stopping at rest stops for vehicles, buses, and/or trains; or lay-overs for air travel, bus travel, or train travel.

The travel advisory requires all New Yorkers, as well as those visiting from out of state, to take personal responsibility for complying with the advisory in the best interest of public health and safety by calling the Allegany County Department of Health at (585)268-9250 to receive quarantine guidance and paperwork. To file a report of an individual failing to adhere to the quarantine pursuant to the travel advisory, please call 1-833-789-0470 or visit this website: https://mylicense.custhelp.com/app/ask. Individuals may also contact the Allegany County Department of Health.

Essential workers and their employers are expected to comply with previously issued DOH guidance regarding return to work after a suspected or confirmed case of COVID-19 or after the employee had close or proximate contact with a person with COVID-19. Additionally, this guidance may be superseded by more specific industry guidance for a particular industry (e.g., for a nursing home worker, a negative test PCR test will be required before returning to work). Consult with your employer regarding whether there is industry-specific guidance that may apply to you. If you are returning from travel to a designated state, and if such travel was for longer than the limited duration outlined above, you are required to quarantine for 14 days, unless you are an essential worker.  Please call the Allegany County Department of Health at (585)268-9250 to determine essential worker guidelines, or with any other questions you may have.
