Travel Outside of New York State Guidelines

Updated: March 30, 2021

Effective April 1, 2021, domestic travelers will not have to quarantine after entering New York from another U.S. State or U.S. Territory. Mandatory quarantine remains in effect for international travelers. Governor Cuomo announced the change in the travel advisory program on March 11, but the NYS website has not been updated at this time. We believe the state will update the website soon.

Required Travel Procedures

  • All travelers must continue to fill out the New York State Department of Health Traveler Health Form.
  • 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.

COVID-19 travel guidelines require all New Yorkers, as well as those visiting from out-of-state, to take personal responsibility for compliance in the best interest of public health and safety.
