“These new cases reflect the danger that interstate travels pose to efforts to contain COVID-19,” she said, warning that “such travels spread the virus from place to place, complicate contact tracing and risk implanting the virus in communities.”

She argued that “the lockdown which mandates people to stay at home is based on the logic that during a pandemic, the less contact there is with others, the safer everyone is.”

The commissioner warned residents “to avoid interstate travels and to promptly report to the authorities any person who has recently travelled from an affected state and develops symptoms of cough, fever, or sore throat.”
