New York ends mandatory quarantine for travelers, health experts advise getting tested

New York has ended the mandatory quarantine that was required by travelers outside the state.

Travelers will also not need to provide a negative COVID test before arriving.

Those traveling into New York are still asked to complete a Traveler Health Form for contact tracing purposes.

Some parents voiced relief- knowing that they would not have to scramble to find tests for themselves, or children after returning from spring break trips.

“When we get back, the guidelines change after April 1,” Chrissy Wesley of Webster, who traveled to Florida for Spring Break told News10NBC. “We do have to test our son to return to school while we’re in Florida, so we will test him and we’ll return and he doesn’t need to quarantine after April 1.”

Health experts are still advising that individuals seek out a test within 3-5 days of arriving back in New York.
