If you are traveling to New York from a noncontiguous state, you must take a COVID-19 test at least 3-days prior to your visit. Upon arrival to the state, you must quarantine for at least 3 days before obtaining a secondary COVID-19 test on the 4th day. Both tests must have negative results for the quarantine period to end, described as being upon receipt of the second negative test result.
