All New Yorkers must stay home as much as possible. It is
especially important to stay home if you have been diagnosed with
COVID-19 or have symptoms of COVID-19. It is important to
monitor your health and get care for COVID-19 and other health
conditions when you need it. Go to an emergency room or call 911
if you have:
Persistent pain or pressure in your abdomen or chest
New confusion or inability to stay awake
Blue lips or face
Severe or persistent vomiting or diarrhea
Any other emergency condition
If you have health concerns that are not an emergency, call your healthcare provider.
Call 311 to find a doctor if you don’t have one.
Care is available regardless of immigration status or ability to pay.
Face coverings: All New Yorkers must wear a face covering when they leave home and cannot maintain at least 6 feet of distance from others. A face covering is any well-secured paper or cloth (such as a scarf or bandana) that covers your nose and mouth.
Call 1-844-330-2020, or mail in the paper form if you receive one. Count EVERYONE you live with to get your fair share, including short-term and temporary guests, all children, people not born in the US, family members, friends, roommates, or partners living off-lease.
Absentee ballot to vote by mail: If you need one, you can now request an absentee ballot by mail, phone, fax, email, and via a fillable online form. Visit https://vote.nyc/page/absentee-voting to request yours.
