Revised Travel Policy

April 7, 2021


Asymptomatic travelers entering New York from another U.S. state or territory are no longer required to test or quarantine as of April 1, 2021. 

Quarantine, consistent with the CDC recommendations for international travel, is still recommended for domestic travelers who are not fully vaccinated or have not recovered from laboratory-confirmed COVID-19 during the previous 3 months. 

Symptomatic travelers must immediately self-isolate and contact the local health department or their healthcare providers to determine if they should seek COVID-19 testing.

New York State does require travelers entering New York from a state that is not a contiguous state and who have been outside of New York for more than 24 hours to complete the Traveler Health Form. 

To find that form and more information, including guidelines for international travel, please visit the New York State Novel Coronavirus travel advisory site
