Health Editor’s Note: The U.S. is banned from traveling to countless countries due to our raging rates of sickness and deaths from coronavirus. If you actually were willing to chance COVID-19 by being confined to an airplane, you are not given that chance to tempt viral fate.
Now, we have states that ban other states from entering unless residents from those states maintain a 14 day quarantine upon entering New York. New Jersey and Connecticut have similar bans for travelers from other states. Not sure how a trip to New York, say for business or maybe even pleasure will work out when the first two weeks must be spent in quarantine. Better to not go at all, but then again maybe that is what the ban is all about…..stay away! We do not want more coronavirus, but I do not see how this required quarantine can be monitored.Ask Trump, building a wall would be a better choice. 🙁 …Carol

The newcomers are Alaska, Delaware, Indiana, Maryland, Missouri, Montana, North Dakota, Nebraska, Virginia, and Washington. Minnesota came off the list this week, no longer meeting the hotspot threshold. It could return just as easily though; Delaware only spent a week off the list before its numbers rose again.
Cuomo, New Jersey Gov. Phil Murphy and Connecticut Gov. Ned Lamont jointly implemented ….read more:
