On September 4, the Mayor announced that the last day to pay and remove properties from the tax lien sale at-risk pool has been postponed to September 24.

Why has New York City enacted random checkpoints?
These checkpoints are another educational tool designed to ensure travelers understand and comply with New York State’s travel restrictions.
Through enormous sacrifice and perseverance, New York City has reduced COVID-19 transmission and positive test rates to among the lowest in the country. We cannot afford to let our guard down now.
What are New York City’s travel restrictions?
New York State law requires anyone entering New York State from states with a high COVID-19 positivity rate to:
Who is subject to New York City’s travel restrictions?
Any individual who has spent more than 24 hours in any state on New York’s Restricted State List in the last 14 days.
Where can I find out if a state I traveled to is on the New York Restricted State List?
I am a New York City resident. Do I have to complete the New York State Traveler Health Form and quarantine for 14 days?
Yes, if you traveled to any state on New York’s Restricted State List and spent more than 24 hours in that state.
Where will the checkpoints be located?
We can confirm that they will be located throughout New York City.
How long will I be stopped?
Just a couple of minutes. The registration form takes less than 5 minutes to complete. You can avoid that delay by filling out the form online before you arrive in New York City.
What if I am only passing through New York City and not stopping?
You are still required to complete the New York State Traveler Form if you spent more than 24 hours in any state on New York’s Restricted State List in the last 14 days.
What happens if I do not comply with State law and fail to register and/or quarantine?
We know that everyone will cooperate in the interest of public health and slowing the spread of COVID-19. However, for truly exceptional cases of noncompliance, pursuant to State law, individuals may be subject to significant fines.
