    Sonya, don't know if I can ask this question, please let me know if its appropriate.
    I have to fly to NY for family needs. I think NY requires a negative Covid test 3 days days before you arrive, anyone have any experience with this? I already ready got my 2
    vaccine shots.

    Agree with @vegasvstr and @vegas superfan, but depending on when your trip is taking place, the rules could very well change again to reflect more people getting fully vaccinated. The website referenced above gets updated regularly so I would bookmark it. If your trip in very soon, then yes, that's the process. If it's a couple of months away, a lot, I believe in a positive way, could happen between now and then given that you are fully vaccinated.

    I fly out of Albany also and on my last trip over Super Bowl weekend, I booked a test thru CVS on W. Tropicana Ave. I drove up to the drive through on Saturday afternoon and had my test results by Monday afternoon before my flight left at 2pm that day. Just make sure you reserve a day and time slot at least 3 days in advance because the reservation times go fast.. My return flight landed in Albany at 9:30pm on Monday so I did another test at a local CVS on Thursday morning and had my test result on Friday afternoon. This allowed me to go to work on Friday night. Much better than quarantining for 10 days

    Callahanha, thanks for the info. were you charged for the test? How did you get the results? I had looked at CVS since we are covered by medicare if that's what I need.

    If you are coming after April 1 you will no longer have to quarantine. It was just announced today.
