Wednesday, July 8 is New York City’s Get Tested Day of Action. We’re trying to get the word out FREE COVID-19 testing to help stop the spread of COVID-19.
Getting tested is safe, confidential and free. All New Yorkers should get tested, even if they do not have symptoms, to help protect our loved ones. Until we have a vaccine, making sure everyone gets tested and safely separates if they test positive is the best way to protect others and help reopen our economy.
The Test & Trace Corps helps all New Yorkers receive FREE testing for COVID-19 and makes sure that anyone with the virus receives care, and can safely separate to prevent the spread. The Corps has activated a special group of Contact Tracers to help provide New Yorkers with the resources they need to safely separate and stay healthy.
You can learn more at www.testandtrace.nyc and find a testing site near you at nyc.gov/covidtest.
