Governor Cuomo Announces Quarantine for Domestic Travel Will No Longer Be Required Starting April 1st

NYS COVID-19 Travel Advisory PageTraveler Health Form | Press Release

Governor Andrew M. Cuomo today announced that domestic travelers will no longer be required to quarantine after entering New York from another U.S. State or U.S. Territory starting April 1st. While no longer required, the NYS Department of Health still recommends quarantine after domestic travel as an added precaution. Mandatory quarantine remains in effect for international travelers. All travelers must continue to fill out the Traveler Health Form. Individuals should continue strict adherence to all safety guidelines to stop the spread - wearing masks, socially distancing and avoiding gatherings.

"New Yorkers have shown strength and perseverance throughout this entire pandemic, and it shows through the numbers that continue to decrease every day," Governor Cuomo said. "As we work to build our vaccination infrastructure even further and get more shots in arms, we're making significant progress in winning the footrace between the infection rate and the vaccination rate, allowing us to open new sectors of our economy and start our transition to a new normal in a post-pandemic world. As part of that transition, quarantine for domestic travelers is no longer required, but it is still being advised as an added precaution. This is great news, but it is not an all-clear for New Yorkers to let their guard down. To beat this virus once and for all we all must continue doing what we know works to stop the spread, including wearing masks, washing our hands and practicing social distancing."

ROC has launched an initiative to promote safety and health at the airport named #ReadySetROC detailing new procedures and preparations as air travel across the nation is expected to grow slowly as communities emerges from the COVID 19 pandemic.

Passengers and Airport tenants can expect the following ongoing initiatives:

Enhanced Cleaning

More frequent detailed cleaning and sanitizing of high-touch surfaces in public areas throughout the terminal and parking facilities (including counters, handrails, elevator buttons, food court tables, seating and parking shuttles).  This includes misting anti-bacterial cleaner/solution on seating and surfaces.

Hand Sanitizing

Free hand sanitizing stations throughout the terminal building in high-touch areas such as ticketing, passenger security checkpoint, passenger boarding gates and restrooms.

Face Coverings

All Monroe County Employees are required to wear face coverings while in public areas of the airport.  Per the NYS Executive Order and CDC guidelines, airport employees, tenants and those visiting public spaces are recommended to wear face coverings when unable to maintain six feet of social distancing.  Passengers are encouraged to review in advance the policies of the airlines they are flying on to familiarize themselves with airline masking requirements. Policies may vary by airline.

Social Distancing

Social distancing floor decals, markers and signs are being put in place at ticketing counters, passenger queuing areas, including the passenger security checkpoint, food concessions and passenger boarding gates.  ROC Airport has technology in place called “ROCview” that allows passengers to view their gates live in real-time from their own hand-held mobile phone or device using the terminal Wi-Fi from anywhere in the terminal – reducing the need to crowd passenger boarding gates.

Plastic Shields

Acrylic “sneeze guards” are being installed throughout the terminal at public counters in the ticketing lobby, passenger security checkpoint, car rentals and food concessions.

Encouraged use of Smart Phone Lot

Those picking up passengers are encouraged to stage in the smart phone lot and pick passengers up curbside once they have retrieved their baggage and awaiting outside the terminal.  Columns along the arrivals curb are labeled in numerical order to assist with directional way finding for safe, convenient pick up.

Education

Signage, overhead announcements, social media and other communication strategies are being used to assist employees and passengers during this time.

ROC Airport follows the guidance provided by public health experts at the Monroe County Department of Health and federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).
