New York Ends Quarantine Requirements for Domestic Travelers
As of April 1, New Yorkers and visitors to the State will no longer be required to quarantine after domestic travel. The New York State Department of Health still recommends that domestic travelers quarantine as an added precaution.
Mandatory quarantine remains in effect though for international travelers, and all travelers (domestic and international) must continue to fill out the Traveler Health Form. International travelers will still be required to quarantine for 10 days unless a negative test is obtained within 3 days prior to departure and at least 4 days after arrival. The negative result from the second test must be received before the traveler may exit quarantine.
Travelers should continue to monitor symptoms for 14 days, wash their hands, wear a mask, and immediately self-isolate if symptoms appear.
This is good news for employers, whose employees traveling domestically shall be immediately eligible to return to the workplace rather than quarantining or testing out.
