Beginning June 25, 2020, New York State (along with New Jersey and Connecticut) has issued a travel advisory for anyone who lives in or travels to a state with a 10% or higher average COVID-19 infection rate then returns to New York. Visitors and travelers, upon entering New York, are required to self-quarantine for 14 days. The above link includes information on exemptions for essential workers.
With summer vacations increasing out of state travel, employers in New York should inform employees who choose to travel to those states for personal reasons that they will NOT be eligible for New York’s Paid Sick Leave. This does not apply if the employee travels for work or at the employer’s request.
The list of applicable states changes weekly and should be monitored by those planning to travel.
