COVID-19 Testing Is Available for Free at a Location Near You
Did you get your test for COVID-19 yet?
You can get a free COVID-19 test whether you have insurance or not. Tests are confidential and safe. You will not be asked your immigration status when getting tested at a NYC Health System location.
Go to NYC.Gov/COVIDTest or text "COVID TEST" to 855-48 to find a testing site near you.
Getting tested is safe and by getting tested, you are helping to keep your loved ones safe! Get tested even if you do not have symptoms or are unsure if you were exposed to COVID-19. And if you HAVE been exposed (maybe you’ve been in a large crowd), have symptoms or are planning to visit a loved one who is at risk, you should get a COVID-19 swab test.
Most results are returned in about 48 hours.
New Yorkers who test positive for COVID-19 will receive a call from the Test & Trace Corps to make sure that they receive care, and can safely separate to prevent the spread. Be sure to answer any calls from NYC Test+Trace or (212) numbers to get free resources and support. Learn more about how New York City is here to help you with FREE resources at www.testandtrace.nyc.
