With New York City on an encouraging trajectory of recovery, the tourism industry continues to rise to the challenges posed by the coronavirus. NYC & Company and our partners are actively planning a citywide comeback that will reinvigorate business, reinspire visitation and reconnect us all with the five boroughs. Read on for the latest on the situation citywide, plus plenty of resources for planning ahead.

NYC Updates

New York State has implemented a 14-day quarantine on anyone arriving from a state with a significant degree of community-spread infection. All out-of-state travelers from designated states must complete the State Department of Health traveler form upon entering New York. As of August 6, the City and Sheriff's Office will implement checkpoints at various points of arrival into the City to educate travelers and ensure compliance. For more information, visit ny.gov.

New York City has entered Phase 4 of Governor Andrew Cuomo's New York Forward plan, reintroducing low-risk outdoor activities like botanical gardens and zoos with capacity restrictions, movie and television production, and professional sports without audiences. Museums, attractions, restaurants offering indoor service and other indoor activities will reopen at a to-be-determined later date. For more information, including an overview of phases 2 through 4, please click here.
