Passengers arrive on Long Island amid new tri-state directive to self-quarantine

While New York's infection rates are dropping, other parts of the country are spiking – and anyone arriving to the tri-state area by land, sea or air will need to self-quarantine for two weeks beginning today.
Govs. Andrew Cuomo, Phil Murphy and Ned Lamont announced the policy on Wednesday requiring all travelers from areas with high infection rates to isolate. The directive went into effect at midnight.
News 12’s Andrew Ehinger was at MacArthur Airport where he spoke to passengers arriving from Orlando, Florida. They said they were told of the policy when they boarded the plane.
The airport did not have any signs to remind incoming passengers of the new directive.
Gov. Cuomo said it's up to travelers to follow the rules and there will be no active enforcement. However, the governor said if people do get caught, they could face heavy penalties or fines.
Currently, the states affected by the directive include Alabama, Arkansas, Arizona Florida, North and South Carolina, Utah and Texas.
The U.S. Travel Association bristled against the quarantine rules for travelers coming into the tri-state saying:
The fine for the first violation is $2,000, $5,000 for a second and up to a $10,000 fine if that person causes harm.
