Starting Wednesday, new rules were put into effect for people traveling to New York.
Travelers from non-neighboring states must get a coronavirus test before and after they arrive.
Individuals who test negative still have to quarantine for three days when they arrive and then take a second test.  If that's negative, they can stop quarantining.
"There will be no quarantine list, there will be no metrics, there will be one rule that will apply to the country,' says Gov. Andrew Cuomo.
The rule applies to anyone who has been out of New York for more than 24 hours.
People without proof of a negative test or those who decide not to get tested will have to quarantine for a full 14 days.
