New York’s quarantine requirements for domestic travelers will end on April 1, Gov. Andrew Cuomo announced.
The state currently requires most travelers from noncontiguous states to quarantine upon arrival for either 10 days or until getting negative Covid-19 tests taken both prior to arrival and on the fourth day after arrival. As of April 1, that no longer will be a requirement, though the state’s Department of Health still is recommending it as a precaution.
In a statement, Cuomo said New York is “making significant progress in winning the footrace between the infection rate and the vaccination rate, allowing us to open new sectors of our economy and start our transition to a new normal in a post-pandemic world.”
New York is maintaining quarantine requirements for international arrivals. Both domestic and international travelers still will be required to fill out a traveler health form upon arrival to the state as well.
