On September 22, 2021, New York State updated its quarantine guidance
for fully vaccinated individuals to state that, following exposure to COVID-19, “[f]ully vaccinated individuals should be tested for COVID-19 between the third and fifth day after exposure and must wear a mask in public indoor settings for 14 days or until receiving a negative test result.” The guidance continues to state that “[a]symptomatic individuals who have been fully vaccinated against COVID-19 do not need to quarantine after exposure to COVID-19.” Unvaccinated individuals must continue to quarantine for ten days after exposure, unless they have recovered from COVID-19 within the previous three months.
Fully vaccinated is defined as being two weeks or more after either receipt of the second dose in a two-dose series, or two weeks or more after receipt of one dose of a single-dose vaccine.
