Mobile Test to Treat units, managed by the NYC Test & Treat Corps, provide no-cost instant access to antiviral medication (Paxlovid) for eligible New Yorkers who test positive. Treatment can prevent severe illness and hospitalization.
Every mobile Test to Treat site is staffed with a clinician who can evaluate COVID-positive patients and prescribe Paxlovid.
New Yorkers may now present proof of a positive test — including at-home test results and test results from any external testing provider — at all mobile Test to Treat units to be evaluated for and connected to Paxlovid on site.
Test results must be from within the past 5 days, and patients will be pre-screened for symptoms to determine their eligibility for treatment.Learn more.
In addition, as of Nov. 21, select mobile Test to Treat sites now offer RSV and Flu testing for symptomatic patients. Please make sure RSV or Flu testing is listed as available below the mobile site location.
