Cuomo lifts quarantine restrictions for domestic travelers ahead of Easter holiday
Gov. Andrew Cuomo officially ended the quarantine requirement for domestic travelers ahead of the Easter holiday.
All travelers must fill out a health form, still monitor symptoms for two weeks and quarantine immediately if any symptoms surface.
The Health Department is still recommending that travelers quarantine, with some medical professionals concerned that more travel could result in more cases.
"You're in a closed space with a large number of other people who you don't know, you don't know if they've had the vaccine, you don't know if they've been careful," says Dr. David Goldberg, an infectious disease specialist with New York Presbyterian Medical Group Westchester.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention is advising unvaccinated people to avoid traveling and urges anyone who travels to get tested within five days of your trip. The CDC also urges people to quarantine for a week even if they test negative.
