No. Two week quarantine required if you're coming from any state on the list regardless of test results.

Thank you!
I just flew to NY this past weekend and you have to answer specific questions. You would be told if you need to quarantine or not based on your answers. No test required. I didn't have to quarantine and followed state guidelines with social distancing.
