New York City to add COVID-19 checkpoints at bridges, crossings
New York City will add COVID-19 checkpoints at certain bridges and crossings to enforce quarantine restrictions ahead of the Thanksgiving holiday.
Sheriff Joseph Fucito said Tuesday that among the actions authorities will take is conducting spot checks on passengers stepping off out-of-state buses.
Fucito said testing and tracing teams will be scattered throughout the city to direct people to testing sites and educate out-of-town guests about quarantine restrictions.
