You may purchase at-home rapid tests at many retail locations or pharmacies*. Or, visit the federal government website to order free tests.

*Consult your health plan about reimbursement


Testing for COVID-19 is also widely available throughout New York State. Please call the New York State COVID-19 Hotline at 1-888-364-3065 or visit the NYSDOH website.

If you’re not immunized, you’re not fully protected against COVID-19. To find locations near you offering COVID-19 vaccinations, visit the NY State or NYC websites, or consult the CDC’s comprehensive vaccine finder. Since the creation of these resources, some updates have occurred. For the most recent information on COVID-19 and the vaccines, please visit the CDC website or speak with your Primary Care Provider. And remember ­­– if you are vaccinated, it may be time for your booster, which is an important part of remaining fully protected.
