New NY COVID-19 Travel Rule for Some Who Are Vaccinated Will Get Them Back to Work Sooner
Domestic travelers to New York from at least 24 hours out of state (New Yorkers or those who reside in another state) who have received their COVID-19 vaccine within 90 days of their arrival date will no longer have to quarantine or test out of quarantine. For employers, that will mean their employees in that category will be immediately eligible to return to the workplace. Travelers to New York from abroad will still need to follow the federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (“CDC”) guidelines as to testing and quarantine.
