Wear a Mask

  • Wear a mask whenever required, such as in health care settings.
  • Wear a mask in all public indoor settings.
  • Wear a higher-quality mask, including KN95, KF94, N95, or a cloth mask on top of a surgical mask — especially if you are at high risk for severe COVID-19.

Get Tested

  • Get tested if you have symptoms or were recently exposed. People who are unvaccinated should get tested more often.
  • If you test positive, you may be eligible for treatment. Treatment works best the sooner you begin, so it is important to get tested and seek care right away.
  • Visit COVID-19 Testing Locations or text “COVID TEST” to 855-48
  • NYC Health + Hospital sites offering testing at no cost to you
