New York is easing its rules for out-of-state travelers who have already received a Covid-19 vaccine. On March 3, 2021, Gov. Andrew Cuomo announced that domestic travelers who have been fully vaccinated within 90 days of their trip will no longer have to quarantine or test out of quarantine when they arrive in New York. The rule applies to visitors from other states and New Yorkers returning home from other states.
It’s unclear whether vaccinated travelers will still have to fill out the traveler form required for contact tracing, upon arrival in New York.
New York’s travel rules for those who haven’t been fully vaccinated remain the same:
- Travelers out of state over 24 hours must get tested within three days of departure, prior to arriving in New York. They must then quarantine for three days after arriving. On day four, travelers must get tested again.
- If both tests are negative, travelers can exit quarantine after receiving results from the second test.
- If travelers don’t get tested, they’re required to quarantine for 10 days after arriving in New York.
- Travelers out of state less than 24 hours aren’t required to get tested before departure and they don’t need to quarantine when they arrive in New York. They must still get a Covid test four days after arrival.
