Travel Advisory for New York: 14-Day Quarantine Required

The NYS Department of Health issued a June 25, 2020 travel advisory based on an Executive Order signed by Governor Cuomo. It generally requires anyone returning to New York from one of the 19 states listed below to self-quarantine for 14 days. All New Yorkers and out-of-state visitors are required to comply with the advisory in the best interest of public health and safety.

We ask that patients carefully follow these new regulations for their own safety, and the safety of our employees and other patients in our medical offices. If you have visited one of the states below and need to reschedule an appointment for after your 14-day quarantine period, or convert it to a virtual visit appointment, please call 646-680-4227.

The travel advisory does not apply to people who simply pass through a designated state and stop for a period of less than 24 hours, such as at rest stops, airports, or during bus or train travel.

As more states reopen, the list of designated high-risk states may widen. Check the official New York State Department of Health website for the most up-to-date list of designated states: https://coronavirus.health.ny.gov/covid-19-travel-advisory
