New York Easing Travel Restrictions for those with Vaccine

Governor Andrew Cuomo announces that New York is easing entry and quarantine requirements for those who have been fully vaccinated against COVID-19. The governor made the comments in a news conference on Wednesday, March 3.

Cuomo said, “Domestic travelers are no longer required to quarantine or test out within 90 days of full vaccination.”

Unfortunately, that means if at least three months have passed since your second shot, you will still need to test and quarantine. This policy is a reflection of the lack of data around how long vaccine-related immunity will last.

International arrivals will also still need to quarantine for 10 days and get tested regularly even if they’ve gotten vaccinated. It’s the same deal for those who’ve only got a partial vaccine or haven’t gotten vaccinated yet. Those folks will also still need to show a negative test result taken within 72 hours of arrival.
