Travel-Related Quarantine Requirement

On June 24th, Governor Cuomo issued an Executive Order requiring all individuals traveling from states with “significant community-wide spread” of COVID-19 to quarantine for a 14-day period from the time of last contact within the identified state. “Essential workers” may be exempt from quarantine if furloughs would create a staffing shortage, but they must meet certain requirements, including testing within 24 hours of return from an impacted state. These requirements took effect June 25th. The Department of Health (DOH) has issued interim guidance and Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs). Click here for more information.

The impacted states are published on the DOH website. Because the quarantine and essential worker requirements are triggered when someone returns from a state that is on the list of impacted states as of the date they enter or return to New York, and the states on the list will evolve, we are providing below the lists of all impacted states within specified time periods. This will maintain an historical archive for member reference and will be updated as frequently as possible. To view the current list of impacted states, you may consult the DOH Travel Advisory website.
