COVID19 and New York City: This guide is intended to inform you about current protocols in NYC concerning the COVID19 pandemic. This information is updated regularly, but to be certain, visitors to New York should check this NYS Health Department link before making any travel plans.
Domestic travelers are no longer required to quarantine after entering New York from another U.S. State or U.S. Territory. Mandatory quarantine remains in effect for international travelers.
All travelers must continue to fill out the Traveler Health Form from the New York State Department of Health.
Regardless of quarantine status, all individuals exposed to COVID-19 or returning from travel must adhere to the following:
Indoor dining is allowed at 50% capacity. Many restaurants offer outdoor dining at higher capacity, and some require reservations to facilitate social distancing.
Broadway theaters are currently closed until at least Labor Day.
Museums have reopened with strict capacity restrictions. Most require pre-purchase of timed-entry tickets and temperature checks before entering the museum.
Indoor entertainment and amusement venues are open at 33% capacity. Pre-purchased tickets and temperature checks are required.
Masks are required to be worn correctly covering both nose and mouth on all public transportation.
While not required, New York state now offers the Excelsior Pass App which allows you to upload proof of your negative test or confirmation of your positive vaccination status.
We hope this information regarding COVID19 and NYC has been helpful.
