NY, NJ and CT require travelers from countries with high corona virus levels to quarantine for two weeks



Gov. Cuomo: We've been through hell. We'll come out stronger.

New York Governor Andrew Cuomo, New Jersey Governor Phil Murphy and Connecticut Governor Ned Lamont said travel advisory applies to anyone who comes from a state with a transmission rate above 10 per 100,000 people with an average seven-day turnover or 10 percent of the total population tested positive on a seven-day rolling average.

“We have to make sure the virus doesn’t come on the plane,” Cuomo said.

“We are working very hard to reduce the rate of transmission of the virus, and we don’t want to see it rise,” he added.

On Wednesday, advisors apply to Alabama, Arkansas, Arizona, Florida, North Carolina, South Carolina, Washington, Utah, and Texas. It starts tonight at midnight.

Cuomo said each of New York, New Jersey and Connecticut would be responsible for quarantine enforcement itself.

In New York, Cuomo said, those who violate quarantine may be subject to mandatory court and quarantine orders, and a fine is $ 2,000 for the first offense, $ 5,000 for the second offense, and $ 10,000 if you cause harm.

Cases under control in a tri-state area

The announcement is 180 degrees flip from just a few months ago, when the tri-state area, and New York City in particular, were the center of the pandemic.

In late March, President Donald Trump considered putting three states under quarantine, Rhode Island police stopped vehicles with New York license plates, and Florida directs all travelers from the tri-state area to isolate or quarantine for two weeks.
Strict locking rules for months, extensive testing and imperfect contact tracking efforts have brought cases under control in tri-state and regional areas. New cases decreased last week compared to the previous week in New York, New Jersey and Connecticut.

But now, countries in the South and West see what Dr. Anthony Fauci, a member of the White House coronavirus task force, called “disturbing waves” in cases. On Wednesday, 26 countries reported an increase in cases in the past week compared to the previous week, and the increase was very striking in densely populated countries such as California, Texas, Florida, and Arizona.

Governor Murphy of New Jersey said the tri-state region had “broken the back of the virus” with public health efforts and praised travel advisors.

“That’s the right thing to do, it’s a natural thing to do, it’s a responsible thing to do,” Murphy said.

Governor Lamont of Connecticut said they “reluctantly” decided to institute a travel advisory, adding, “the Northeast region takes this seriously.”

“We are not an island and when we look at other parts of the country, you know we have seen, not only nails, but real communities are spreading,” he said.

Lack of national infrastructure

Travel restrictions between states are just another consequence of the inability of the federal government to create a strong national public health infrastructure. The lack of effective national rules and supply chains has largely left individual states and has the effect of pitting one another.

Even now, 19 states have no requirements for residents to use a faceplate – the simplest and cheapest layer of defense against viruses without vaccines and no widely effective treatment.

Coronavirus Pandemic: Updates from around the world

Indeed, Governor Cuomo has openly ridiculed other countries which he said acted politically rather than scientifically.

“New York moved from one of the highest infection rates in the country to one of the lowest because we made decisions based on science – not politics,” he said Tuesday. “We see in other countries what happens when you have just reopened without regard to metrics or data. This is bad for public health and for the economy, and countries that are reopening in a hurry now look backfired.”

As part of a gradual reopening, New York requires the region to meet certain metrics around testing, contact tracking, and hospital admissions and available beds. New York City, the last area to be reopened, moved to the second phase of reopening on Monday after seeing continuous improvement in each metric.

Richard Besser, former acting director of the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, said no country had effectively reopened its economy safely.

“We must look for ways to make that transition in a successful way, or every country that reopens, even those who have done an excellent job in overcoming this, will see a dramatic increase and we will end back where we are. , “said Besser.

Maestro de Braga is the first Portuguese in the National Symphony Orchestra of Cuba.



Maestro de Braga is the first Portuguese in the National Symphony Orchestra of Cuba.

Maestro Filipe Cunha, Artistic Director of the Philharmonic Orchestra of Braga, has been invited to conduct the Cuban National Symphony Orchestra, as announced today.

According to a statement sent by O MINHO, “he will be the first Portuguese conductor to conduct this orchestra in its entire history.”

In addition to this orchestra, the maestro will also work with the Lyceo Mozarteum de la Habana Symphony Orchestra.

The concerts will take place on 4 and 12 March 2023 at the National Theater of Cuba in Havana.

In the words of the maestro, quoted in the statement, “these will be very beautiful concerts with difficult but very complex pieces” and therefore he feels “very motivated”.

From the very beginning, Rachmaninoff’s Piano Concerto No. 2 will be performed by an Italian pianist (Luigi Borzillo), whom the maestro wants to bring to Portugal later this year. In the same concert, Mendelshon’s First Symphony will be performed.

Then, at the second concert, in the company of the Mexican clarinetist Angel Zedillo, he will perform the Louis Sfora Concerto No. 2. In this concert, the maestro also conducts Tchaikovsky’s Fifth Symphony.

“This is an international recognition of my work. An invitation that I accept with humility and great responsibility. I was surprised to learn that I would be the first Portuguese member of the Cuban National Symphony Orchestra. This is a very great honor,” the maestro said in a statement.

“I take with me the name of the city of Braga and Portugal with all the responsibility that goes with it, and I hope to do a good job there, leaving a good image and putting on great concerts. These will be very special concerts because, in addition to performing pieces that I love, especially Rachmaninov and Tchaikovsky, I will be directing two wonderful soloists who are also my friends. It will be very beautiful,” concludes Filipe Cunha.
