Travel Advisory (updated on 11/4/20) 

Governor Cuomo has announced new guidelines allowing out-of-state travelers to New York to "test out" of the mandatory 14-day quarantine. Travelers from states that share a common border with New York will continue to be exempt from the travel advisory; however covered travelers must continue to fill out the Traveler Health Form. Essential workers will continue to be exempt as well. The new protocol is effective Wednesday, November 4th, 2020. 

For any traveler to New York State from out of state, exempting the states that share a border with New York, the new guidelines for travelers to test-out of the mandatory 14-day quarantine are below: 

For travelers who were in another state for more than 24 hours: 

  • Travelers must obtain a test within three days of departure from that state. 
  • The traveler must, upon arrival in New York, quarantine for three days. 
  • On day 4 of their quarantine, the traveler must obtain another COVID test. If both tests come back negative, the traveler may exit quarantine early upon receipt of the second negative diagnostic test. 

For travelers who were in another state for less than 24 hours: 

  • The traveler does not need a test prior to their departure from the other state, and does not need to quarantine upon arrival in New York State. 
  • However, the traveler must fill out our Traveler Health Form upon entry into New York State, and take a COVID diagnostic test 4 days after their arrival in New York. 

Local health departments will validate tests, if necessary, and if a test comes back positive, will issue isolation orders and initiate contact tracing. The local health department must make contact with the state the traveler came from, to ensure contact tracing proceeds there as well. All travelers must continue to fill out our Traveler Health Form upon arrival into New York State to contribute to New York State's robust contact tracing program. 

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 $10,000 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 trainings, 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.
