New York State Guidance for Out of State Travel

As mid-winter break approaches, the District wants to remind parents/guardians, students, and staff of the New York State guidelines that are in place regarding out of state travel.

If you are traveling to a state contiguous with (bordering) New York (includes Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Connecticut, Massachusetts and Vermont):

You are exempt from the travel advisory, but you must still fill out the New York State Traveler Health Form.

If you are traveling to a state not contiguous with (not bordering) New York and you will be out of state for more than 24 hours:

You must fill out the New York State Traveler Health Form. Additionally, you must be tested for COVID-19 within three (3) days prior to returning to New York.  Upon arrival in New York, you must quarrantine for a minimum of three (3) days from time of arrival. You must be tested for COVID-19 on day four (4).  If both tests results are negative, your quarantine may end.

If you are traveling to a state not contiguous with (bordering) New York and you will be out of state for less than 24 hours:

You must fill out the New York State Traveler Health Form. Additionally, you must get a COVID-19 test four (4) days after arriving in New York.  You will not need a COVID test prior to returning, and you do not need to quarantine when you arrive back in New York.
