I found this interesting. I'm not up on all the current rates and cases, but wasn't New York a hot bed of new cases and even deaths very recently? I could very well be wrong, but I swear that was the case.There are exemptions, including for those from states with low transmission rates. Those states include New York, New Jersey, Connecticut, Maine, New Hampshire, Rhode Island, Vermont and Hawaii.
Maine had implemented the same type of thing (14 day quarantine or a negative test within 72 hrs of arrival). I have no idea how it was enforced or even if it was, other than by the hotel/airbnb industries.
I wonder how this will impact kids from those states not exempted that are current students at schools in Mass. Will there be a significant number that elect not to return? Hopefully that will be tracked and published as I would find that to be pretty interesting. Course, I would also like to know if a kid was from, say, Oklahoma and was a student at Holy Cross but was already thinking about not returning due to the covid situation and/or had already decided not to return prior to this executive order.
