New York State’s Travel Advisory quarantine list/state metrics are being retired; instead, New York is transitioning into a new travel testing policy.  States contiguous with New York are exempt from quarantine protocol.

Effective November 4th, out-of-state travelers will be allowed to “test out” of the COVID-19 14-day quarantine.

The New Regulations under the new testing guidelines

For Travelers who were in another state for more than 24 hours:

  • Travelers must get tested three days before arrival
  • Show a negative test result upon arrival
  • Traveler must, upon arrival in New York, quarantine for three days
  • Obtain a second COVID-19 test on the fourth day. If they test negative, they may exit quarantine; if on the fourth day, the test comes back positive, then the traveler must continue to quarantine for a total of 14 days.

For Travelers who were in another state for less than 24 hours:

  • The traveler does not need a test before they depart from the other state and does not need to quarantine upon arrival in New York.
  • However, the traveler must fill out the Traveler Health Form upon entry into New York State and take a COVID diagnostic test 4 days after they arrive in New York.

Travelers who choose not to get tested must quarantine for two weeks.

Despite modified regulations, these do not affect international travelers, including those arriving in the state of New York from Israel. International travelers entering New York from Level 2 and 3 countries are still required to quarantine and fill out the Traveler Health Form to prevent the spread of COVID-19 further. New York state has a mandatory quarantine for any traveler entering New York from a Level 2 or Level 3 country. That list includes all but 31 countries around the world. See a list of the 31 countries/territories NOT subject to the governor’s executive order and mandatory quarantine requirement.
