New York City will put up COVID-19 quarantine checkpoints at key entry points to ensure that incoming travelers from 35 states with outbreaks comply with the state's 14-day quarantine mandate, Mayor Bill de Blasio said on Wednesday. "Travelers coming in from those states will be given information about the quarantine and will be reminded that it is required, not optional," de Blasio told a news briefing. The Sheriff's Office, in coordination with other law enforcement agencies, will begin deploying checkpoints at major bridge and tunnel crossings into New York City on Wednesday.

U.S. Representative Carolyn Maloney, who has represented a New York City district in Congress since 1993, declared victory in a hard-fought Democratic primary on Tuesday, defeating progressive challenger Suraj Patel. Maloney announced the win in New York's 12th congressional district after the New York State Board of Elections certified the results from the June 23 primary.

In an email sent to de Blasio that the New York Times obtained, Dr. Oxiris Barbot said she was leaving with "deep disappointment" over the fact that the Health Department's expertise was not "used to the degree it could have been" as New York City, once the pandemic's U.S. epicenter, fought to contain the virus that claimed the lives of tens of thousands of its residents. In May, de Blasio was criticized for giving control of the city's COVID-19 contact tracing efforts to the public hospital system instead of putting it in the hands of the health department, which had run such programs before.
