  •  Governor Andrew Cuomo has updated the out-of-state travel rules and health advisory. The updated rules can be found in full HERE.

  • It should be noted that in the new guidelines individuals can "test out" of the mandatory 14-day quarantine beginning Wednesday, November 4. 

  • Individuals who were in a state on the travel list for more than 24-hours must: 1) Obtain a test within three days of departing a state on the restricted list. 2) Quarantine for three days upon entering New York and fill out a Traveler Health Form found HERE.  3) Obtain another COVID test on the fourth day of quarantining. If both tests come back negative, the individual is allowed to end their quarantine.
 
  • Individuals who were in a state on the travel list for less than 24-hours must: 1) Fill out the Traveler Health Form above. 2) Take a COVID test four days after arriving in New York.

  • These requirements do not apply to individuals traveling in from Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Connecticut, Massachusetts, and Vermont as they are exempt from the domestic Travel Advisory.
