Best news EVER.

Beginning April 1st, domestic travelers into New York City will no longer have to quarantine for three days and have proof of a negative Covid test upon entry. Although this is still recommended, it will no longer be required to quarantine. Visitors will be welcome to immediately particpate in city life.

In other good news, indoor dining capacities will increase to 50% on March 19th. This is in addition to the bulked up outdoor and takeout services already offered by many restaurants. If you are considering a trip to New York City, this is a good time. It is projected that tourism won’t fully recover for another year or more. Fewer people means greater opportunity to social distance, with shorter lines, smaller crowds and generally, the ability to do and see more on your trip.

I have my own trip planned to New York City in May. Before, during, and after my trip I will be featuring things to do while in the city that minimize your contact with crowds and focus on being in open air spaces. Stay tuned, you’re going to be seeing a lot more of me here at Beyond the Square!
