The Coronavirus infection rate is on the rise in New York State. Officials says just over 11,500 new COVID-19 infections have been recorded in the past 2 weeks. Governor Cuomo on Monday said the rising numbers are mostly in Rockland & Orange Counties as well as some areas of Brooklyn and Queens. The state says they will be deploying 200 rapid testing machines to the sites of several upticks.
Cuomo also said on Monday that travelers to NY from what are considered “level 2 or 3 countries” will have to quarantine and fill out a travel form when they arrive in New York. The governor signed the executive order on Monday.
