In response to increased rates of COVID-19 transmission in certain states within the United States, and to protect New York’s successful containment of COVID-19, the State has joined with New Jersey and Connecticut in jointly issuing a travel advisory for anyone returning from travel to states that have a significant degree of community-wide spread of COVID-19. The travel advisory requires that anyone coming to New York from an affected state will fill out the Traveler Health Form and quarantine for 14 days, under monitoring by State and local contact tracers. Essential employees may conduct essential business, but will be required to quarantine when not at work.
Travelers arriving from an affected state who will be in New York for less than 14 days but more than 24 hours (specifically while traveling through the state) will be required to quarantine for the time that they are in New York. A negative COVID-19 test result does not release travelers from the mandatory 14-day quarantine period.
For a current list of states affected by the travel advisory and for detailed information on quarantine measures and exceptions, please visit the State’s website on the Travel Advisory. To file a complaint about non-compliance with the Travel Advisory, please fill out the NY on PAUSE complaint form.
