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.

As of November 4,

Travelers who were in another state for more than 24 hours may "test out" of the mandatory 14-day quarantine. To test-out:

  • Travelers must obtain a test within three days of departure from that state.
  • The traveler must, upon arrival in New York, quarantine for three days.
  • On day four of their quarantine, the traveler must obtain seek another COVID test. If both tests come back negative, the traveler may exit quarantine early upon receipt of the second negative diagnostic test.

Travelers who were in another state for less than 24 hours do not need a test prior to their departure from the other state, and do not need to quarantine upon arrival in New York State. However, the traveler must fill out the traveler information form upon entry into New York State, and take a COVID diagnostic test four days after their arrival in New York.

Travelers from states that are contiguous with New York continue to be exempt from the travel advisory; however, unnecessary travel among these states is discouraged while infection rates remain above recommended levels.
Essential workers continue to be exempt as well.
