President Trump Considers Quarantine for NY, Parts of NJ and CT As 115,547 Cases in the USA, NJ Now At 11,124

March 28, 2020

President Trump said in Norfolk, VA today that he is considering having a 2 week quarantine for NY, parts of NJ and parts of CT and details will be revealed soon, perhaps early as later today. We will be posting when we get the order from President Trump.

President Trump’s remarks:

We will stop at nothing to protect the health of New Yorkers and the health of the people of our country in their hour of need.  I also want to remind everyone about the CDC’s latest guidance: If you are from the New York metropolitan area and you travel elsewhere, we need you to
self-quarantine for 14 days to help us contain the spread of the virus.

And I am now considering — we’ll make a decision very quickly, very shortly — a quarantine, because it’s such a hot area, of New York, New Jersey, and Connecticut.  We’ll be announcing that, one way or the other, fairly soon.  This does not apply to people such as truckers from outside the New York area who are making deliveries or simply transiting through.  It won’t affect trade in any way.”
