If you are traveling domestically, you will no longer be required to quarantine after arriving in New York starting April 1, according to Gov. Andrew Cuomo.
Cuomo announced today that domestic travelers won’t have to quarantine after entering New York from another U.S. state or territory. While a quarantine is no longer required after April 1, the New York State Department of Health still recommends a quarantine after travel as an added precaution. A mandatory quarantine is still in effect for international travelers.
All travelers are still required to fill out the Traveler HealthForm.
As always, travelers should continue to follow all safety guidelines, including wearing masks, social distancing and avoiding large gatherings.
Individuals should continue strict adherence to all safety guidelines to stop the spread - wearing masks, socially distancing and avoiding gatherings.
“This is great news, but it is not an all-clear for New Yorkers to let their guard down,” says Cuomo. “To beat this virus once and for all we all must continue doing what we know works to stop the spread, including wearing masks, washing our hands and practicing social distancing."
Anyone exposed to COVID-19 or returning from travel must still:
• Continue daily symptom monitoring through Day 14;
• Continue strict adherence to all recommended non-pharmaceutical interventions, including hand hygiene and the use of face coverings, through Day 14 (even if fully vaccinated);
• Must immediately self-isolate if any symptoms develop and contact the local public health authority or their healthcare provider to report this change in clinical status and determine if they should seek testing.
