New York Governor Andrew Cuomo announced a new executive order has been issued, any New York employee who voluntarily travels to a COVID-19 "high-risk state" after June 25 will be ineligible for paid sick leave from New York's COVID-19 paid sick leave law.

The travel advisory, which started Thursday, applies to states with a positive coronavirus test rate that's higher than 10 per 100,000 people and to states that have a seven-day rolling average of at least 10% positive tests.

Cuomo signed the order Friday saying that he wanted to maintain New York's progress battling the pandemic.
