NY State Governor Andrew Cuomo announced a new plan Saturday, 10/31/20 and effective 11/4/20, for people looking to travel to New York State during the COVID-19 pandemic, and it all revolves around testing.
The governor announced the travel advisory state list is no longer in effect because nearly every state was on the list. Instead, the governor announced a new plan that requires travelers to test negative for COVID-19 prior to coming to New York.
The new travel rules do not apply to any bordering states, as many people come to New York on a daily basis for business, according to Governor Cuomo.
The governor also said enforcement of the new travel rules falls on the airports and local health departments.
The new travel rules eliminate the previous guidelines which stated travelers must quarantine for 14 days if they were coming from a state with a high infection rate. However, if someone denies getting tested for COVID-19 upon arrival to New York, Governor Cuomo says they are still subject to the 14-day quarantine no matter what state they traveled from.
