MAYVILLE – Chautauqua County’s Executive says he is pleased to hear Ohio has been removed from New York State’s COVID-19 Travel Advisory list.
Wendel says because of Ohio’s proximity to Chautauqua County, tourists from the state contribute greatly to the local economy.
“This is great news that Ohio has been removed from the incoming travel advisory,” said Wendel in a statement. “With Chautauqua County in the southwestern corner of New York State, our close proximity to Ohio and Pennsylvania has a direct impact on our economy.”
“During our recent control room meetings, and in concert with Senator George Borrello and Assemblyman Andy Goodell, we discussed at length the impact of Ohio’s restricted state status on our region,” furthered Wendel. “I am excited to see it has now been removed from the list so we are one step closer to rebuilding our economy.”
The travel advisory went into effect on June 25.
New York State’s Department of Health Interim Guidance says those who travel from within one of the designated states with significant rates of transmission of COVID-19 must quarantine when they enter New York State for 14 days.
