Travelers coming into New York State from a non-bordering state are being told they need to have proof of a negative COVID-19 test within three days of arriving.

Governor Cuomo announced Saturday he's doing away with the quarantine advisory list and replacing it with a new blanket testing policy.

Those arriving with a negative test must then quarantine for three days and then take another coronavirus test on the fourth day.

Those not wishing to be tested either before or after arriving in New York must quarantine for 14 days.

If you are only outside of New York for less than 24 hours, then you don't need the COVID test prior to returning.

The new policy goes into effect on Wednesday, November 4th.
