NYC Mayor Bill de Blasio Implements COVID Checkpoints to Enforce ’14 Day Quarantine’


NEW YORK – Previously, 21WIRE warned that some US cities would be bypassing federal and state officials in order to impose new and more draconian COVID measures, including the quarantining of whole cities. Chicago’s Democratic Mayor Lori Lightfoot was the first to impose these unprecedented emergency measures. She’s been followed by New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio, who is now attempting to impose checkpoints for travelers entering New York City from 35 supposed “hotspot states.”

Yesterday it was revealed how over 350 cars have already been stopped at random at newly implemented ‘COVID checkpoints’ designed to enforce the Mayor’s latest quarantine rules.

In scenes reminiscent of East Germany, the Democrat Mayor de Blasio has deployed sheriff’s deputies to bridges and tunnels in order to interrogate drivers heading into the city and demand they have the correct “papers” in order to pass through.

The mayor has threatened those drivers who do not ‘self-isolate’ for 14 days that they will be fined up to $10,000.

It remains unclear exactly how de Blasio will be able to legally enforce his new raft of unusual authoritarian ‘public health’ orders.

Despite his harsh public warnings during the week, none of the Mayor’s promised ‘Army of Contact Tracers’ had actually showed up to work at Port Authority hubs like bus stations and train stations.

Moreover, it still remains unclear how exactly the Mayor can guarantee that those traveling from alleged ‘hotspot states’ will actually be quarantining for 14 days.

The 35 states on listed on New York Governor Andrew Cuomo’s mandatory ‘hot spot’ quarantine list include:

Alaska, Alabama, Arkansas, Arizona, California, Florida, Georgia, Iowa, Idaho, Illinois, Indiana, Kansas, Kentucky, Louisiana, Maryland, Minnesota, Missouri, Mississippi, Montana, North Carolina, North Dakota, Nebraska, New Mexico, Nevada, Ohio, Oklahoma, Puerto Rico, Rhode Island, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas, Utah, Virginia, Washington, Wisconsin.    

Anyone traveling into the city is expected to have their ‘papers in order.’ A series of forms had previously forced on people arriving by plane to the city, but the quarantine forms are now being extended to drivers which ask:

  • Where they have traveled from
  • Whether NYC is their final destination
  • How long they intend to stay
  • Contact information, Phone number and email
  • What address they are staying at





Legally, these restrictions of movement and forced quarantines being attempted in New York and Chicago are in violation of citizens constitutional rights.
