“You violated the law, you're going to have a problem." Cuomo says police will be on lookout for quarantine violators
 Gov. Andrew Cuomo has given more details on the travel advisory that requires travelers arriving from states with a high number of coronavirus cases must self-quarantine for 14 days.
Cuomo said Thursday that New Yorkers have sacrificed much over the past three months to get the numbers down and that progress must continue.  
 
 
As of June 25, anyone coming from states with transmission rates above 10 per 100,000 people on a seven-day rolling average, or 10% of the total population testing positive on a seven-day rolling average, must quarantine for two weeks if they travel to New York, New Jersey or Connecticut.
Cuomo says there are checks in place to catch those who don't comply. "There will be random checks. You get pulled over by a police officer, and he looks at where your residence and says how long have you been here. If you get sick and go to a hospital, and you’re from out of state, and you test positive, and you've been within the 14 days, you violated the law, you're going to have a problem." States currently over the threshold included Alabama, Arkansas, Arizona, Florida, North Carolina, South Carolina, Washington, Utah and Texas.
There will be a $2,000 fine for the first violation, $5,000 for the second , and up to a $10,000 fine if you cause harm.
