Coronavirus refugees who are fleeing New York City face a growing crackdown from other states who are using police and the national guard to force them into quarantine.

Locals in the Hamptons want to ban coronavirus refugees coming from the Big Apple and force those that are there to quarantine inside for 14 days.

Rhode Island is sending out the National Guard to hunt down escaping New Yorkers who have fled to its towns, after wealthy residents and celebrities have taken over the areas as they escape the virus epicenter.

Florida, Texas, South Carolina and Maryland also require a mandatory 14-day quarantine for new arrivals from New York.

Beaches in the Hamptons have been filling up earlier than usual and local stores have been ransacked of goods as an influx of New Yorkers and celebrities including Alec Baldwin have been holing up there as the coronavirus pandemic continues to spread.

Other celebrities spotted recently there include Hugh Jackman, Scarlett Johansson and Anna Wintour.

Local leaders in The Hamptons are calling on New York Governor Andrew Cuomo to issue a travel ban from the city, to stop any more New Yorkers invading their towns.

The leaders of four of the beachside communities wrote to Cuomo Friday urging him to take action and ban residents coming to the East End, after locals have complained of overcrowded beaches and grocery store supplies being depleted by the escapees.

Residents are also calling for anyone who has recently arrived from the city to be ordered to quarantine for 14 days.

Concerns are ramping up that New Yorkers looking to escape the pandemic in their home towns could actually be spreading the pandemic to the rural areas, after warnings issued by Dr. Deborah Birx, of the White House coronavirus response team.

Southold Town Supervisor Scott Russell said the New Yorkers are putting local Hamptons residents at risk.
