New York Removes Quarantine Requirement for Covid-19 Exposure

The New York State Health Department revised its Covid-19 guidance webpage this week to state that it is following the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s guidance for isolation and exposure. Quarantine for mere exposure is no longer required for those not exhibiting symptoms or testing positive for Covid-19. The state’s revision of its recommended approach follows a number of recent pronouncements easing preventative measures for Covid-19 exposure, including the lifting of masking requirements on New York City and regional public transportation.

The vaccine mandate remains in effect for New York City private sector employers, although the city reiterated in June that it is focused on “prioritizing education instead of enforcement” of the mandate. Both CDC and New York state guidance publications are for general application and are not specific to employers or the workplace. New York employers should consider revising their workplace Covid-19 policies to reflect the changes.
