As New York City continues on an encouraging trajectory of recovery, we are actively planning for a safe, responsible citywide comeback that will reconnect us with each other and our beloved five boroughs. Read on for the most useful and current information for navigating the City, plus plenty of resources for planning ahead.
New York State has implemented a 14-day quarantine on anyone arriving from a state with a significant degree of community-spread infection. All out-of-state travelers from designated states must complete the State Department of Health traveler form upon entering New York. On August 6, the City and Sheriff's Office began to implement checkpoints at various points of arrival into the City to remind travelers and ensure compliance. On August 18, the Mayor ordered that hotels and short-term rentals require guests from restricted states to fill out a traveler health form before beginning their stay.For more information, visit ny.gov.
New York City has entered Phase 4 of Governor Andrew Cuomo’s New York Forward plan, reintroducing low-risk outdoor activities like botanical gardens and zoos with capacity restrictions, movie and television production, and professional sports without audiences. Museums and cultural institutions were allowed to open, with restrictions, as of August 24. The Governor has announced that restaurants offering indoor service will be allowed to open, beginning September 30, at 25 percent capacity; there will be a review no later than November 1 to determine whether that capacity can be increased to 50 percent. Additional venues, attractions and indoor activities will reopen at a to-be-determined later date. For more information, including an overview of phases 2 through 4, please click here.
