NYS Travel Restrictions and School Attendance

Updated March 11, 2021

New York state has issued the following updates to its COVID-19 guidelines on travel:

As of April 1, 2021, domestic travelers will no longer be required to quarantine after entering New York from another U.S. state or U.S. territory. While no longer required, the NYS Department of Health still recommends quarantine after domestic travel as an added precaution.

Mandatory quarantine remains in effect for international travelers.

  • All travelers (domestic and international) must continue to fill out the traveler health form. 
  • Individuals should continue strict adherence to all safety guidelines to stop the spread — wearing masks, social distancing and avoiding gatherings.

If you are traveling internationally:

  • You must show either documentation of having recovered from COVID-19 within in the previous three (3) months –or– a negative test result from no more than three (3) days prior to day of travel to the airline before boarding the flight.
  • Upon arrival back in the U.S., you must either quarantine for seven (7) days and test for COVID-19 three to five (3-5) days after travel –or– quarantine for the full 10 days without a test. This requirement applies to all international travelers whether they were tested before boarding, are recovered from a previous COVID infection, or are fully vaccinated.
