COVID-19 / Novel Coronavirus: Response Testing
The City of New York is working to expand testing for COVID-19 rapidly throughout the five boroughs.
Community testing sites operated by NYC Health + Hospitals use self-collection of swabs to minimize contact between patients and health care workers. Self-swab testing for COVID-19 is safer, simpler and faster.
Free and convenient walk-in testing is now available at the following locations. No appointment is necessary. Check back regularly for more locations as sites continue to be opened.
Outside of the New York City Area - Contact the New York State Department of Health
The FDA has approved New York State to authorize the state's 28 public and private labs to begin manual, semi-automated and automated testing for novel coronavirus, or COVID-19.
The approval allows the state to dramatically increase testing capacity to thousands of tests per day. The approval also extends to the Roche high-volume platform for testing.
Testing is free to all eligible New Yorkers as ordered by a health care provider or by calling the NYS COVID-19 hotline at 1-888-364-3065.
Your local health department is your community contact for COVID19 concerns.
