Timeline of the tristate travel advisory list
Editor's note: The information below details the tri-state travel advisory list, which was in effect from June to October. On Oct. 31, Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo announced new guidelines replacing the list: Out-of-state visitors must get tested for COVID-19 before departure for New York, quarantine upon arrival and obtain a negative test result to get out of quarantine. Bordering states and essential workers are exempt, and travelers can forgo testing and opt for a 14-day quarantine. Read more about these rules here.
In June, New York, New Jersey and Connecticut had implemented a joint travel advisory requiring visitors from states with high infection rates of the coronavirus to quarantine themselves for 14 days when they visit the tristate region.
According to the advisory, visitors had to isolate themselves if they arrive from states registering 10 positives per 100,000 tested on a seven-day rolling average or with a 10% or higher positivity rate on a seven-day rolling average.
