Stay home if you are sick
Only leave for essential medical care or other essential errands. Stay home if you are sick, recently tested positive for or were exposed to COVID-19, are 65 or older, have underlying health conditions, or live or care for people who are 65 or older or have a health condition.

Keep physical distance
Stay at least 6 feet away from other people.

Keep your hands clean
Wash your hands often with soap and water. Use hand sanitizer if soap and water are not available.

Wear a face covering
You can be contagious without symptoms. Protect yourself and those around you by wearing a face covering. When you wear a face covering, you protect people around you, in case you are infected but do not know it. A face covering can also help protect you from infection.

Get Tested
All New Yorkers should get a COVID-19 virus (diagnostic) test, whether or not they have symptoms or are at increased risk. Tests are free. Learn more about testing in NYC, including finding a free site near you.

Avoid Travel
Traveling puts you and those around you at risk of getting sick and spreading the virus. If you must travel, plan ahead by reading our guidance below and taking all recommended precautions. Be prepared to quarantine when you return.

Continue to get the essential medical care you need. If you have a medical emergency, call 911.
