COVID-19: Information for Providers

Updated Guidance

COVID-19 Vaccine

Updated Quarantine Guidance

New York State reduced the length of quarantine (PDF, December 26, 2020) after an exposure to COVID-19 from 14 days to 10 days.

Congregate settings can, at their discretion or at the direction of New York City or State oversight agencies, continue to adhere to a 14-day quarantine period for residents and staff of those facilities.

Health care personnel in hospital and direct care settings (such as primary care facilities) should not work while under quarantine, unless essential patient services are impacted and approval is granted by the State Department of Health. For more information, see the State Department of Health Advisory for Health Care Personnel (PDF).

Health care personnel at nursing homes and adult care facilities — certified as Enhanced Assisted Living Residences or licensed as Assisted Living Programs — can discontinue quarantine after 10 days, but they may not return to work until 14 days have passed.
