After 10 days, people should continue to monitor symptoms through day 14 - if any symptoms appear, they should immediately self-isolate.
The rest of the guidelines to test out of the 10-day quarantine are as follows:
--Travelers must obtain a test within three days of departure from that state
--The traveler must, upon arrival in New York, quarantine for three days
--On day four of their quarantine, the traveler must obtain another COVID test
--If both tests come back negative, the traveler may exit quarantine early upon receipt of the second negative diagnostic test
