Completely Vaccinated? You Are Now Free to Move About the Country
Since last June, there were restrictions in place to make sure that New Yorkers were following protocols while traveling during the coronavirus pandemic. Governor Cuomo had set a two-week quarantine on those who traveled outside of New York. This meant that anyone returning to the state must stay isolated for fourteen days. As of Thursday, April, 1st, that is over.
This is great news for every New Yorker trying to get away either for a vacation or to visit loved ones that we haven't been able to see in months. I don't know if you are like me, but when I heard this news, I immediately started to search for flights all over the country. I was even considering visiting a state I have never been to know that when I return I wouldn't have to use more vacation days (that I didn't have) to quarantine.
According to WKBW, New York state still requires all people who fly into New York to fill out the Traveler Health Form. If travelers come in from other countries, they are still required to quarantine. If you have any symptoms of COVID-19, you will still have to quarantine for fourteen days and isolate yourself from others.
The governor warns, however, that this isn't for New Yorkers to let their guard down. He said:
To beat this virus once and for all we all must continue doing what we know works to stop the spread, including wearing masks, washing our hands, and practicing social distancing.
