New York State Travel Guidance for General Population

March 15, 2021

New York State Governor Andrew M. Cuomo announced that domestic travelers will no longer be required to quarantine after entering New York from another US state or US territory starting April 1. Mandatory quarantine will remain in effect for international travelers, and all travelers must continue to fill out the Traveler Health Form.

Until April 1, recently updated guidance remains in effect. On March 10, DOH released interim guidance for quarantine restrictions on travelers arriving in New York State following out-of-state travel. This guidance was updated to reflect that domestic travelers to New York who are asymptomatic and fully vaccinated (as defined above) may be exempt from quarantine.

The guidance also states that individuals and their support persons/companions traveling to New York for medical appointments or procedures may receive such care but must quarantine at all other times. This provision has not been modified for individuals who have been fully vaccinated.
