NEW YORK STATE COVID-19 TRAVEL ADVISORY

International Travel:
On September 28, 2020,  Governor Andrew M. Cuomo signed an executive order reminding international travelers entering New York from Level 2 and 3 countries (countries the CDC identifies as high or moderate risk for transmission of COVID-19) to quarantine and fill out the NYS Department of Health traveler health form to further prevent the spread of COVID-19. New York State has since March 2020, required a mandatory quarantine for any traveler entering New York from a Level 2 or Level 3 country. Since the CDC has continued to roll back their screening measures at airports accepting international flights, this measure is necessary to link travelers to the Suffolk County Department of Health for contact tracing purposes. The New York State Commissioner of Health will expand his Emergency Health Order, which authorizes the imposition of civil penalties, if individuals refuse to fill out the required form.

Domestic Travel:
Beginning on June 25, 2020, persons traveling to New York, New Jersey or Connecticut from any state that has an infection rate above 10 per 100,000 on the seven-day rolling average or 10 percent of the total population positive on a seven-day rolling average are required to quarantine for 14-days. New York State requirements and a listing of states with significant rate of COVID-19 transmission can be found here.

 

As of October 20, due to spikes in cases nationwide, non-essential interstate travel between Connecticut, New Jersey and Pennsylvania is being discouraged. 

 

The New York State Department of Health Traveler Health Form and Precautionary Quarantine Requirements can be found here.
