New Quarantine Procedures for Out-Of-State Travelers Effective Tomorrow
As of Wednesday, November 4, the out-of-state travel guidelines are changing.
Travelers coming into New York State from another state, exempting the contiguous states, have the option to test-out of the mandatory 14-day quarantine.
For travelers who were in another non-contiguous state for more than 24 hours:
- 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 4 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.
For travelers who were in another non-contiguous state for less than 24 hours:
- The traveler does not need a test prior to their departure from the other state, and does 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 4 days after their arrival in New York.
