New York to increase travel restrictions ahead of the holiday season.

New York Governor Cuomo said new COVID entry test requirements will be implemented ahead of the holiday season.

New York Governor Cuomo said new COVID entry test requirements will be implemented ahead of the holiday season. From November 4, 2020, New York city accustomed a change to its travel advisory initiative which was announced by Governor Andrew Cuomo on October 31. Travelers from non-neighboring states are required to get a coronavirus test report before their arrival if they want to avoid a full 14-day quarantine. Travelers will still need to complete the required health form and must quarantine for three days upon their arrival in New York. After that, they must take a second test on the fourth day of arrival. As long as both tests are negative, the individual can leave quarantine. All travelers covered by the advisory must continue to fill out the Traveler Health Form upon arrival in New York State. New Yorkers returning from travel under 24 hours outside the state don't need to take a test before returning but must do so after they re-enter.

He made another announcement on the updated COVID-19 response in New York State on November 6. He said the state will step up enforcement of the state’s new COVID-19 travel advisory for the upcoming holiday season. He said, "You should not land if you do not have proof of a negative test upon landing. I want people to know we're serious," and added that he'd increase National Guard presence at New York airports to enforce new COVID entry test requirements ahead of the holiday season. He also stated that he had spoken with Mayor Bill de Blasio about enhancing NYPD presence to assist with checking travelers.
