NY: Quarantine no longer mandatory

As of April 10, 2021, asymptomatic domestic or international travelers entering NY are no longer required to test or quarantine.

While CDC and New York state still recommend delaying all international travel till fully vaccinated, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has eased travel restrictions and no longer requires quarantine or testing for asymptomatic travelers.

Therefore, New York State has just announced that as of April 10, 2021, asymptomatic travelers entering the state are no longer required to test for COVID-19 before arrival, or quarantine upon entering NY.

Having said that, fully vaccinated international travelers are still recommended to get tested 3-5 days upon arrival to NY. As for unvaccinated international travelers, they are recommended to get tested as well, and consider non-mandatory self-quarantine for seven days if they get tested, or ten days if they don’t. All travelers are advised to avoid contact with people at high-risk for severe disease for 14 days, regardless of their test results.

Last but not least, all travelers entering the state must still complete the Traveler Health Form, unless they have left NY for less than 24 hours, or are entering NY from neighboring states: Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Connecticut, Massachusetts or Vermont.
