1. Travelers who traveled outside of New York for more than 24 hours must obtain COVID 19 diagnostic testing within 72 hours prior to arrival in New York AND
2. Such travelers must, upon arrival in New York, quarantine for a minimum of 3 days, measured from time of arrival, and on day 4 may seek a COVID 19 diagnostic test to exit quarantine. Upon receipt of the second negative test result, the traveler may exit quarantine.
Contiguous states are Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Connecticut, Massachusetts and Vermont. Travelers to these states are not subject to the quarantine requirements above.
Travelers who travel outside of New York for less than 24 hours do not need to take a COVID test prior to their departure from the other state but must still quarantine for 3 days upon return to New York and test on the fourth day to exit quarantine.
