New York City mayor Bill de Blasio announced the creation of checkpoints throughout the city to monitor compliance with the quarantine. Those who violate the 14-day quarantine will be fined more than $10 thousand.
New York City mayor Bill de Blasio announced on August 6 that checkpoints will be installed at the entrances to the city to monitor the quarantine of people who come from other States. He wrote about this on Twitter.
вЂњToday we announced COVID-19 checkpoints at key entry points,вЂќ the mayor wrote on Twitter.
De Blasio, in a video message posted on the new York government's Twitter page, said the penalties for violating the quarantine would be more than $10,000.
New York Sheriff Joseph Fusaro clarified that these measures are needed to protect Americans from the spread of COVID-19.
вЂњOur goal is to comply with quarantine measures. And checkpoints are an effective means to protect our beloved city,вЂњ the Sheriff said in a video comment.
A report published by the New York government says that checkpoints will be installed throughout New York.
вЂњThese points are an educational tool designed to help travelers understand and comply with travel restrictions in new York state,вЂќ the government said.
Then everyone must observe a 14-day quarantine. Violators will face fines of large amounts, the decree says.
Previously, we reported that according to WHO, the mask can only be effective if a number of rules are followed and combined with regular hand treatment. However, due to the loose fit to the face, it only slightly reduces the likelihood of infection.
