NEW YORK — Out-of-state travelers arriving in New York will no longer have to obey a mandatory quarantine starting Thursday.
Domestic travelers, however, are still being asked fill out a traveler contact form, monitor their symptoms, and take other basic precautions.
International travelers are still expected to quarantine upon arrival.
Those who produce negative COVID-19 tests from both before and after they get to New York can leave quarantine after four days.
Those who don't have to stay in quarantine the whole 10.
This time last year, air travel in the United States was practically non-existent.
But in recent months, passengers are returning to the air.
Just this past Sunday, the TSA processed more than 1.5 million people through its checkpoints.
Compare that to just 180,000 on the same day in 2020.
Recent activity is still well short of pre-pandemic numbers of travelers.
