ALBANY, N.Y. (UPDATED) -- New York updated its travel guidance Wednesday, eliminating the quarantine and testing requirements for domestic travelers who have been fully vaccinated.
According to Gov. Andrew Cuomo, people who travel within 90 days of full vaccination will not have to quarantine or test-out if traveling to New York from within the United States. If traveling more than three months after getting fully vaccinated, travelers must either quarantine for 10 days or get a COVID-19 test three days prior and four days after coming or returning to New York.
International travelers must still follow guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, which require a negative COVID-19 test result, or document of recovery from COVID-19, before coming into the country.
New Yorkers who have not been vaccinated must still follow the current travel guidelines.
In February, the CDC updated its guidelines, saying people who had been fully vaccinated did not have to quarantine if they were exposed to COVID-19 up to three months after being vaccinated. At the time, the CDC said it's not known how long protection lasts, so people who had their last shot three months ago or more should still quarantine if they are exposed.
