New York State has removed 5 states from the list of places that those traveling from need to quarantine. When you return from a state that is still on the list, you are required to self isolate for 14 days. The list has gotten a little shorter this week. That is a positive sign in the fight against this national and international pandemic.

According to the reports, Governor Cuomo said people coming from Alaska, Arizona, Delaware, Maryland, and Montana will no longer have to quarantine for 14 days upon arrival in New York.

The travel advisory has made it a tough summer for some families who had been planning a trip. Canada has been off limits for months and it was only recently that things have opned up around Western New York. As colleges open and students begin to travel in to the area from out of state, institutions have required their students to self isolate/quarantine for 14 days before interacting or attending classes on campus.

The fall is going to be a challenge as schools attempt to reopen under various plans and ever-changing guidelines.
