On Monday, July 13, Governor Andrew Cuomo announced the threshold criteria for reopening schools. The Governor will use these criteria to make a final decision on the reopening of schools for the Capital Region and the rest of New York State. This decision is expected to be made between Aug. 1-7.
New York state’s school reopening decisions will be made using these criteria:
- Open: Schools can open in a region in phase 4 where there is an infection rate at or below 5% (14-day average)
- Close: Schools will close if the regional infection rate rises above 9% (7-day average)

Travel restrictions now apply to all non-contiguous states (non-bordering).
- Travelers can “test out” of the 14-day restriction by testing within 72 hours of departing for NY. Then they must quarantine for 3 days upon arrival in New York. On the 4th day after arrival, the traveler must test again, and upon getting a second negative test result are no longer required to quarantine.
- Travelers leaving New York for less than 24 hours do not need to test before leaving or after returning to the state; however, these travelers must fill out the traveler health form, and seek testing on the 4th day after returning.
- For New Yorkers who leave the state for less than 24 hours, you must take a test within four days of returning to the state. If you are a New Yorker who leaves the state for more than 24 hours, you must follow the new policy listed above.
- If you choose not to get tested on the fourth day then you must remain in quarantine for 14 days.
