Due to the increased rate of COVID-19 in certain states across the county, New York State has joined New Jersey and Connecticut in jointly issuing a travel advisory for anyone returning from travel to states with significant community spread of COVID-19. For the most updated list of restricted states click here. All travelers entering New York will be required to quarantine for a 14 day period from the time of last contact with the identified state.
This quarantine applies to any person arriving from a state with a positive test rate higher than 10 per 100,000 residents over a 7-day rolling average or a state with a 10% or higher rate over a 7-day rolling average.
Traveler Health Form:
All travelers coming from designated states must complete the Traveler Health Form upon entering New York. Travelers who leave the airport without completing the form will be subject to a $2,000 fine and may be brought to a hearing and ordered to complete mandatory quarantine. Travelers coming to New York from designated states through other means of transport, such as cases and traings, must fill out the form online. If a traveler needs assistance in locating the form, the traveler should call the St. Lawrence County Public Health Department for assistance.
