The US Open, one of the biggest events in the sport of tennis, is just around the corner, and after a very unusual 2020 tournament, fans will welcomed back to the stands at full capacity.
After a stretch of stay-at-home orders and travel restrictions, however, most of us are pretty rusty when it comes to planning trips—particularly trips for events.
The good news is that VIVA has you covered, so there’s no need to stress.
Here’s everything you need to know to get yourself front and center for the 2021 US Open:
US Open Date and Location
The US Open is scheduled to run from Monday, August 30, to Sunday, September 12 of this year.
The event will go down at the USTA Billie Jean King National Tennis Center and Flushing Meadows Corona Park, both of which are in Queens, New York City.
How to Get to New York City for the 2021 US Open
As of June 15, New York Governor Andrew Cuomo has removed most coronavirus-related restrictions in New York State—that includes travel restrictions. That means that you can fly, drive, bus, or train into “The Big Apple,” just as you would have before the pandemic turned the planet upside down.
That being said, it’s a good idea to keep apprised of the latest information. Here’s the most recent statement the State has provided with respect to travel:
“Quarantine periods for domestic and international travelers entering the state are no longer required (though it remains recommended for those not fully vaccinated). Travelers from out of state — except for those coming from New York’s contiguous states, which are New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Connecticut, Massachusetts and Vermont — must fill out a traveler health form, as do travelers coming from another country.”
