Rhode Island Governor Fearful of New York

Go to New York for any reason then back to Rhode Island and you are subject to a 14-Day Quarantine.

Democratic Rhode Island Gov. Gina Raimondo said Thursday she is "mandating, not suggesting," a 14-day self-quarantine for anyone traveling to her state from New York in the latest clampdown on domestic travel amid the novel coronavirus pandemic.

The executive order -- effective immediately -- also applies to anyone who has traveled to New York in the last 14 days.

"This is unusual," Raimondo said of the plan to execute the mandate. "This is radical."


Her order reflects a growing concern among state leaders across the country about travelers coming from New York, where the outbreak has surged.

The governor said she plans to station members of the National Guard at bus terminals and train stations and will require anyone arriving from New York to check in and give the guardsmen and women their contact information. State police have been instructed to flag down cars with New York state license plates as they come into Rhode Island.
