NYC hotels, short-term rentals must now require travelers to fill out form

Hotels and short-term rentals in New York City are now required to make out-of-state guests fill out a traveler form before giving them access to their rooms, to ensure that they quarantine if warranted.

Mayor Bill de Blasio on Tuesday signed an executive order requiring the traveler health forms be completed by people coming from states on the restricted list during the coronavirus pandemic.

“If they don’t have that form from the traveler, they should not give them access to that room period,” de Blasio said at his daily press briefing.

A 14-day quarantine is mandatory for travelers from restricted states.

De Blasio also asked all New Yorkers to refrain from traveling to states seeking spikes in COVID-19 infections.

“If you have a choice in travel, don’t go where the problem is,” he said.
