People traveling to New York, New Jersey and Connecticut from eight additional states will have to quarantine for 14 days upon entering, bringing the total number of states on the governors’ “travel advisory” list to 16, officials said Tuesday.
Gov. Andrew Cuomo, a Democrat, announced in a press release Tuesday morning that travelers coming from the following states must quarantine:
- North Carolina
- South Carolina
Earlier in the day, New Jersey Gov. Phil Murphy and Connecticut Gov. Ned Lamont announced plans to adopt the same mandate in a bid to keep the number of novel coronavirus cases in their respective states under control.
U.S. District Judge Gary L. Sharpe handed down a preliminary injunction on Friday against New York officials for violating the First Amendment by shutting down religious services while encouraging Black Lives Matter protests.
Earlier this month, two Catholic priests and three Orthodox Jews came together in a lawsuit against New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo, New York Attorney General Letitia James, and New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio, alleging that Democrats were violating their religious liberty under the First Amendment (and the Equal Protection Clause of the Fourteenth Amendment) by discouraging religious gatherings while joining large crowds of protesters in the streets.
Gov. Andrew Cuomo on Sunday threatened to take away the punch bowl from the reopening party being celebrated by Manhattanites and Hamptons residents.
Appalled by photos of mass gatherings that are ignoring social distancing protocols, Cuomo said he would shut down various locations again if residents don’t abide by the state’s reopening rules.
“We’re not going to go back to that dark place because local governments didn’t do their job,” Cuomo said. He claimed the state has received 25,000 complaints about health-safety violations since the start of the pandemic, most of them involving bars and restaurants.
“Manhattan and the Hamptons are the leading areas in the state with violations,” Cuomo said. “These are not hard-to-spot violations. People send videos of these violations.”
Large billboards with criticizing Gov. Andrew Cuomo, Lt. Gov. Kathy Hochul, and Erie County Executive Mark Poloncarz are set to be displayed in Buffalo.
The billboards which ask to ‘Re-Open New York’ will be displayed on the 190 outbound, and the 33 inbound.
“Businesses are dying, landlords can’t pay their bills, and people are making more money staying at home than most ever have in a week before and aren’t required to pay their rents,” said Tim Walton, who organized the effort. “What people don’t understand is this isn’t close your business and maybe you’re out a little bit of money. This is people who have gone through hell, worked 80 hours a week, sacrificed their life savings, housing, and years of their life to build something that they are being told ‘you may have to close’. To some, that is like taking away their life.”

New York officials moved to quietly change reporting rules to undercount nursing home deaths after Governor Andrew Cuomo’s disastrous decision ordering them to take in coronavirus patients came to light, according to a new report.
From The Daily Caller, “New York Admits Knowingly Undercounting Nursing Home Deaths After Quietly Changing Reporting Rules”:
New York has omitted an unknown number of coronavirus deaths in recent reports regarding residents of nursing home and adult care facilities, the New York State Department of Health acknowledged in a statement to the Daily Caller News Foundation.
In early May, those reports quietly began omitting long-term care residents who died of coronavirus in hospitals. Even so, New York still leads the nation with 5,433 reported deaths at nursing homes and adult care facilities as of Wednesday.
The revelation comes as New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo faces criticism for ordering nursing homes and other long-term care facilities to accept patients from hospitals who had tested positive for coronavirus. Cuomo rescinded the March 25 order, which experts say led to higher levels of death among nursing home residents, on May 11 to allow such facilities to wait until a coronavirus patient tests negative before readmitting them.
New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo on Monday announced the light at the end of the coronavirus pandemic tunnel, revealing regions of the Empire State should prepare for reopening after the state-wide pause is set to end on May 15.
“We start a new chapter today in many ways. It’s a new phase,” Cuomo said at a press briefing from Rochester Regional Health. “We are, from my point of view, on the other side of the mountain. Now we can intelligently turn toward reopening.”
As the rate of new COVID-19 cases in New York has declined to the rate of “about where we started this horrific situation,” Cuomo said the state is ready to begin a “safe” and prepared reopening.

Conservative radio host Mark Levin has been blowing the whistle for a while.
Now, more Americans are starting to listen.
In what is emerging as one of the biggest untold stories of the coronavirus crisis, the media is starting to pay attention to the fact that the carnage of COVID-19 in nursing homes in New York state not only took place on Democratic Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s watch but was actually facilitated by an order from his state government.
As the New York Post’s Michael Goodwin recounted in a column published Sunday, a March 25 directive by the New York Department of Health essentially ordered nursing homes in the Empire State to accept patients carrying the coronavirus — bringing carriers of the potentially deadly organism into proximity with those most vulnerable to being killed by it.
And the results were inevitable.

While New York City remains under lockdown orders from Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D) due to the Chinese coronavirus pandemic, major violent crime continues to soar.
Cuomo implemented stay-at-home orders on March 20 that effectively force the closure of most businesses, except those deemed “essential,” to stop the spread of the coronavirus.
Even with the lockdown, major crime categories such as murder, burglary, and auto theft have spiked across New York City.
Over the last 28 days, in the middle of the lockdown, murders in New York City have jumped more than 55 percent compared to this same time last year, when there were no lockdown orders in place.
New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D) said in a Friday press briefing that the deadly novel coronavirus came to New York state from Europe, instead of China, citing recently-published research.
“The virus that came to New York did not come from China. It came from Europe,” Cuomo began as he explained new research tracing the early spread of coronavirus. The research, conducted by NYU Langone Health, found roughly 13,000 flights landed in New York and New Jersey from Europe between January and March, carrying over 2.2 million people.
“We closed the front door with the China travel ban, which was right, but we left the back door open,” he said, referring to President Trump’s travel ban on Europe on March 12.
New York City is adding people who did not test positive for the coronavirus to its count of those who died from COVID-19.
On Tuesday, the city decided to add people who never tested positive but are presumed to have died from the virus, helping to raise the death toll by 3,700 in one day, according to The New York Times.
When The Times did the math, it said the new figures increased the total death tally in the United States by 17 percent in a day.
Although the Johns Hopkins Coronavirus Resource Center and the city calculate numbers differently, the center says that more than 26,000 Americans have died of the disease, including more than 7,900 in New York City.
