(CNN)Governors in the northeast, once considered the US epicenter of the coronavirus, are tightening restrictions in their states for travelers from areas of the country now seeing upward trends in positive coronavirus cases and hospitalizations.

Ahead of the July Fourth weekend, New York, New Jersey and Connecticut on Tuesday expanded travel advisories requiring people arriving from eight additional southern and midwestern states to quarantine for 14 days.
As of Tuesday, the Democratic governors from the tri-state area are requiring self-quarantine for travelers from: Alabama, Arkansas, Arizona, California, Florida, Georgia, Iowa, Idaho, Louisiana, Mississippi, North Carolina, Nevada, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas and Utah. The requirement was first announced for eight states last week.
    The travel advisory applies to anyone coming from a state with a positive test rate higher than 10 per 100,000 residents over a 7-day rolling average or a state with a 10% or higher positivity rate over a 7-day rolling average. There are exemptions for essential workers.There are more than 2.6 million reported cases of coronavirus nationwide, according to Johns Hopkins University, and new cases in at least 36 states are trending upward compared to the previous week.Read More"As an increasing number of states around the country fight significant community spread, New York is taking action to maintain the precarious safety of its phased, data-driven reopening," New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo said in a statement Tuesday."We've set metrics for community spread just as we've set metrics for everything the state does to fight COVID-19, and eight more states have reached the level of spread required to qualify for New York's travel advisory, meaning we will now require individuals traveling to New York from those states to quarantine for 14 days."Massachusetts Gov. Charlie Baker also announced Tuesday that beginning on Wednesday, travelers arriving to the state -- including residents of the state returning home -- will also be required to self-quarantine for 14 days. Essential workers and travelers from the tri-state area and the northeast states of Maine, New Hampshire, Rhode Island, and Vermont are exempt. "As we've all seen, several other states are seeing sharp increases in new cases and hospitalizations, which is a very real reminder to all of us about just how contagious this virus can be," Baker, a Republican, said in a news conference.
      "Massachusetts is reopening but we want to make sure that our out-of-state visitors are also taking appropriate precautions."Baker said that his decision to lift the quarantine for travelers from those northeast states are because they've shown low positive test rates cases in the past weeks.

      Wheel-y impressive! A two-year-old skateboarder has become a viral sensation thanks to his incredible shredding skills, which have earned him the nickname Tiny Hawk

      On a roll: Brody Alexzandr, from Sacramento, started learning how to skateboard while in quarantine with his family and has only been boarding for a few months now

      Fearless: Brody wears a helmet, and elbow and knee pads, when he skateboards, but he is completely confident on his board, his parents said

      According to his parents, Shayne Dillynger and Alexzandria Hopkins, Brody only began learning to skateboard during quarantine, after his dad, who is also a keen skateboarder, lost his job in the food industry amid the pandemic, and decided to dedicate his time to teaching his son how to board. 

      Mom Alexzandria began capturing video of Brody's newfound skills, recording her son 'whooshing' down the street on his board, before the youngster progressed to the local skatepark, where he can now be seen trying his hand at a variety of different ramps.  

      In just a matter of months, both Brody's skill level and his online fandom have sky-rocketed, with the toddler racking up millions of views on both Instagram and TikTok, where he boasts hundreds of thousands of followers. 

      Both Shayne and Alexzandria admit that the process of watching Brody learn to skateboard has been 'nerve-wracking' and a 'little intense', however they say it has been a delight seeing their son develop such a passion for his newfound hobby. 

      'Being by his side watching his progression is just absolutely amazing,' dad Shayne told CBS Sacramento. 

      'Whoosh, he calls it whoosh,' Alexzandria added, revealing that her son spends five hours on his board every day. 'All day every day, "Mama I go whoosh."'
