A mattress bed and bathroom unit in New York has been found to have bed bugs that caused a state of emergency and called for a temporary halt in New Yorkers holiday plans, the New York Department of Health and Mental Hygiene said.
The agency said it is investigating and will work with the mattress company to determine if any of its units were used in the incident, which occurred on Dec. 21.
In the wake of the outbreak, New Yorkers were forced to take a long, two-day break and were ordered to return to work for a year.
In addition, New York Gov.
Andrew Cuomo said he will ask the state legislature to pass legislation that would ban any public or private business from opening any new business or residential space in New Mexico, Colorado, Montana, Texas and New Mexico to handle the outbreak.
The state also imposed a temporary ban on public workers from working or living with their families or on vacation.
The New York outbreak has resulted in at least 20 deaths and more than 600 infections, according to the department.

The department has also said that the public will be allowed to travel only for recreational activities like horseback riding and rafting, but no other activities.
