  • If you are sick or had close contact with someone who is sick in the last 14 days:
      • Stay home. Call your doctor or a health care provider if you have symptoms, before seeking treatment in person.
      • New York City emergency responders are experiencing a surge in unnecessary calls and ask that the public only call 911 if they have a heart condition, are choking, are having true difficulties breathing or cannot breathe. Non-emergency calls should be directed to your health care provider or the city’s 3-1-1 system, which can help you determine the next steps.
  • Testing can be ordered by a health care provider, who determine whether a test should be done, or by calling the state COVID-19 hotline at 1-888-364-3065.

  • Patients must meet the state’s criteria to be tested, which evaluates a combination of symptoms and risk factors.  If you think you may need to be tested, you can fill out the state’s online assessment form to be screened for testing.

      • An individual has come within proximate contact (same classroom, office, or gatherings) of another person known to be positive
      • An individual has traveled to a country that the CDC has issued a Level 2 or Level 3 Travel Health Notice, and shows symptoms of illness

      • An individual is symptomatic and has not tested positive for any other infection; or
      • Other cases where the facts and circumstances warrant as determined by the treating clinician in consultation with state and local department of health officials.
