The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention issued a travel advisory urging residents of New York, New Jersey, and Connecticut to “refrain from non-essential domestic travel.”

The advisory, in place for 14 days, is not intended to apply to “employees of critical infrastructure industries” such as those in health care, financial services, the food supply chain, and trucking.

The move came after President Trump said he was considering a quarantine for the three states but was forced to withdraw his thought after New York Governor Andrew Cuomo publicly stated that it would be “unenforceable” and “unconstitutional,” calling it “a war on the states.”

“If you start walling off areas all across the country, it would just be totally bizarre, counterproductive, anti-American, [and] anti-social,” the governor said.

Some states are attempting to impose a 14-day self-quarantine on travelers arriving from New York.  Other states, such as Hawaii, are imposing a 14-day self-quarantine on all arrivals, including returning residents.
