If you visited New York City within the past few days — you’re being urged to self-quarantine for 14 days.

White House coronavirus task force coordinator Dr. Deborah Birx said during a press conference today that people who left New York City during “the last few days” may have been exposed to coronavirus. Dr. Birx said “it’s very critical” those people should self-quarantine at home for 14 days, effective to their last day in New York. Her example: “So if [a person] is already four days out, then it’s just ten more days.”

I’m guessing applies to people who connected through one of the city’s airports, as well.

New York state already has a “stay at home” order issued by its governor, Andrew Cuomo.

    I applaud President Trump’s efforts in managing and curtailing this crisis. He has done a good job with early travel closures from China and Europe. I wish he did announce a total quarantine of NYC and surrounding counties as the metro NY area is the biggest hot spot with all that Iranian and Italian influx 4 weeks ago. It is unfortunate the rest of the country is put a tremendous risk by downstate New York, California and Western Washington State.
