New York City is supplementing COVID-19 checkpoints at certain bridges and intersections to comply with quarantine restrictions prior to Thanksgiving.
Sheriff Joseph Fucito said on Tuesday that the authorities’ measures included on-site inspections of passengers departing from buses outside the state.
According to Fucito, testing and tracking teams are scattered throughout the city to direct people to testing sites and educate out-of-town guests about quarantine restrictions.

The measures were designed to allow visitors to try out the mandatory 14-day quarantine.

The city requires out-of-town guests to fill out travel forms when they arrive at airports, Penn Station and the Port Authority Bus Station, and self-check teams are available at those locations.
The extended COVID-19 epidemiological measures and implementation occur when the state, which was once the center of the spring epidemic, reported a seven-day average of 1,476 new cases on Tuesday.
Officials have warned about holiday travel as they work to curb COVID-19 infections in the colder months as more and more people gather inside, making the virus easier to spread.
But Blasio said Tuesday that the positivity rate was 3.17 percent, which is higher than what public schools in New York allow to hold personal classes.
Last week, the mayor announced that the country’s largest school district will be closed as cases rise across the city, although the Cuomo has recently said it will allow schools to reopen, even if the infection rate remains above 3 per cent, provided schools follow epidemic procedures such as e.g. testing was reported by CBS New York.
Under New York State law, the state will take control of urban schools if the level of infection remains at a critical level above the 3 percent threshold, as the governor said schools are currently safer than staying in other heavily infected communities.
“The school is safer than the local community. Think about it. The rate of infection in the community is 3 percent. The school is below half a percent, “Cuomo said.
“Why would you want your child to stay home, which means they won’t stay home,” Cuomo added. “That means they’re going to go out. They’re running in a 3 percent community.”
