Get Tested (For Free)!

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​.

How Can I Protect Myself and Others from Coronavirus?

•Wash hands often with soap and warm water for at least 20 seconds. Use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer if soap and water are not available

.•Cover your mouth and nose with a tissue or your sleeve when sneezing or coughing. Do not use your hands.

•Do not touch your eyes, nose or mouth with unwashed hands.

•Do not shake hands. Instead wave or elbow bump.

•Monitor your heath more closely than usual for cold or flu symptoms.

•Get the flu shot. Although the flu shot will not protect you from COVID-19, it will help prevent the flu which has similar symptoms to this coronavirus.
