NEW YORK TRAVEL ADVISORY UPDATE

Dear Indian River Community:

On Wednesday, March 3, 2021, New York Governor Andrew Cuomo announced that domestic
travelers to New York State who have been fully vaccinated for COVID-19 within the last 90
days will no longer be required to quarantine or be tested upon arrival. On March 11, New York
State updated its COVID-19 Travel Advisory to reflect this announcement. Previously,
unvaccinated travelers from noncontiguous states and territories were required to quarantine for
ten days upon arrival, or obtain two negative tests within the time period provided in the travel
advisory.
Specifically, asymptomatic travelers to New York who have been fully vaccinated against
COVID-19 are no longer required to quarantine in the first three months after vaccination if at
least two weeks have passed from receipt of the second dose of a two-dose vaccine or from
receipt of a single-dose vaccine. All travelers must still complete a Traveler Health Form upon
arrival and continue to adhere to social distancing, mask wearing, and other COVID-19 safety
guidelines.
In addition, asymptomatic travelers who previously tested positive for COVID-19, but have
since recovered, are also exempted from testing and quarantine requirements for three months
from the date of the onset of symptoms, or from the first positive diagnostic test if the
individual never showed symptoms.
On March 11th, Governor Cuomo announced that beginning April 1st, New York will no longer
require (but will continue to recommend) quarantine for domestic travelers to the State. All
travelers must complete a Travelers Health Form upon arrival and comply with other
COVID-19 safety guidelines, including mask wearing and socially distancing. Travelers must
also self-monitor for symptoms for 14 days and immediately self-isolate if symptoms develop.
International travelers will still be required to quarantine upon arrival in New York, and must
also continue to follow CDC travel and quarantine guidance, regardless of whether or not they
have been vaccinated. Currently, the CDC requires that all international travelers produce a
negative COVID-19 test within three days prior to departure and recommends that all travelers
quarantine for at least ten days upon arrival in the United States, or seven days if they test
negative within 3-5 days after arrival. New York State requires international travelers from
CDC Level 2 or higher countries quarantine for ten days or produce two negative COVID-19
tests. We continue to await additional guidance from New York State regarding international
travel and will update this post if New York further revises its official COVID-19 Travel
Advisory.
Accordingly, it is anticipated (but not yet official) that on April 1, 2021, the travel advisory
will be lifted for anyone traveling from another U.S. State or U.S. Territory who arrives in New
York on or after April 1, 2021. Please refer to the New York Department of Health Travel
Advisory website for the most up to date information regarding travel, which can be
found here: https://coronavirus.health.ny.gov/covid-19-travel-advisory
All travelers must continue to fill out the Traveler Health Form upon return to New York State.
If the travel advisory restrictions are lifted as anticipated, you must continue to monitor your
symptoms daily for 14 days following your travel. Should any symptoms occur then you
should self-isolate and contact Public Health or your healthcare provider to determine if you
should be tested.
If the travel restrictions are lifted for domestic travel on April 1, 2021, the Daily COVID
questionnaire will be updated at that time and will only address international travel.
The District will continue to honor all quarantine orders issued by Jefferson County Public
Health, Fort Drum Public Health, or any formal orders of quarantine received..
Thank you for your understanding as we continue to navigate this unprecedented school year.
We appreciate all that you are doing to help keep our students, your colleagues, and
yourselves safe during this time. Enjoy your Spring Recess!

Sincerely,

Mary Anne Dobmeier
