New York Ends Quarantine Requirements, Moving to Testing Policy


Apr 29, 2020
New York State will no longer require residents to quarantine when returning to the state, Governor Andrew Cuomo announced over the weekend.

New York, which had been requiring a two-week quarantine for almost all travel, will now transition to a new travel testing policy that will allow travelers to quarantine for just three days if they are able to obtain two negative COVID-19 tests, one within three days of departure from the state they were visiting and another on day four of their arrival back to New York. If both of those tests are negative, “the traveler may exit quarantine early upon receipt of the second negative diagnostic test,” the new rules read.

For New Yorkers in another state for less than 24 hours, no negative test prior to their departure from the other state will be required, but the traveler “must fill out our traveler form upon entry into New York State, and take a COVID diagnostic test 4 days after their arrival in New York.”
