The requirements of the travel advisory do not apply to any individual passing through designated states for a limited duration (i.e., less than 24 hours) through the course of travel, such as stopping at rest stops, or lay-overs for air, bus, or train travel.
Please note this is an Executive Order and violations will be enforced pursuant to Article 21 of the public health law, and non-compliance may be deemed a violation pursuant to Section 12 of the public health law subject to a civil penalty of up to $10,000.
We must all take personal responsibility for complying with the advisory in the interest of protecting the health and safety of our learning community.
