New York City Sheriff Joseph Fucito says there will be vehicle checkpoints at key bridges and crossings and the travel quarantine will be strictly enforced.

Spot checks of out-of-state buses will be conducted when riders are dropped off at the curb. Test and tracing teams will be on hand to direct individuals to testing sites and provide quarantine education.

Travelers must either quarantine for 14 days or test out, and violations of self-quarantine may include fines of $1,000 to $2,000.

Traveler forms will be enforced at airports, Penn Station, and the Port Authority Bus Terminal, where there will also be self-test site teams.

According to Mayor Bill de Blasio, New York has reported a seven-day average of 1,476 new cases and a seven-day positive test rate of 3.17%.
