Upon negative results of a second COVID test taken four days after arrival, the traveler may leave quarantine.

Those who have been out of state for 24 hours or less do not need a COVID test prior to arrival in NY and are not required to quarantine upon entering NY. However, they must take a COVID diagnostic test 4 days after arriving in NY. Local health departments will monitor COVID tests,issue isolation orders if necessary, and initiate contact tracing.
