For any traveler who has traveled outside of New York for more than 24 hours, such traveler must seek testing prior to departure from that state, within 72 hours of departure, prior to arrival in New York.


I would equate "State" with country but that's my opinion

From this link

Edit: actually I will remove "opinion" from the above. Pretty clear that there is a required test prior to arrival AND a few days after arrival

New York has just had strict guidelines put in place, better to avoid New York altogether in my opinion.

New York City had 1,662 new cases yesterday, Nov. 12th. Pretty much out of control!

I just re-read your question....if you are flying back through or into NY to go to another state the NY issues/requirements do not apply.....

According to the CDC web site St Maarten and Saint Martin are level 3 high risk covid and as such a test is required before arriving in a New York airport if that is the final destination airport.

Kim, we just did the JB JFK trip. So long as you are not in NY more than 24 hours you are exempt. And you don't have to sign up in their portal. We called them (and they answered the phone!) to confirm as the regs were not clear. You WILL, however, have to get one for CT!

We did get back to NY from the Caribbean 11/12 and expect when you leave customs they will be waiting with covid docs in hand to be filled out. There is no way around these NYS restrictions of 4 day quarantine. On 4th day a new covid must be obtained to be cleared. If you maybe a essential worker there are exemptions in place to accommodate.

Not if she's transiting through. Only if you are in NY 25 hours or more.

The NY quarantine/testing requirements are only for the residents and people staying in New York. From the Jet Blue announcement “people arriving from states bordering NY, including CT, MA, NJ, PA & VT are exempt from these restrictions”

This was the direct message from JB. I don’t think they even know. I’m not gonna worry landing in NY and driving/limo to CT

self-quarantine
Kim:

self-quarantine for 14 days and don't leave your house for 14 days when you get back to CT and you should be all set.
So are you really going to self-quarantine for 14 days?
That also means you do not leave your house and no goes to your house for Thanksgiving!
Is that your part of your plans?
Or maybe get an inaccurate test smile

Well thanksgiving is fine as I’m
Not leaving until after Christmas. Two weeks at home - doable as I work from home. But will get tested. Easily done where we live.
