NYC Test & Treat Corps

The NYC Test & Treat Corps, formerly the NYC Test & Trace Corps, is the City’s comprehensive effort to connect all New Yorkers with the critical tools for COVID-19 testing, guidance and treatment. Our mission is to provide New Yorkers convenient, widespread access to free testing, rapid connections to COVID-19 treatment and resources to support those recovering from Long COVID.

How Does the Test & Treat Corps Work?


The Corps operates a testing network of hundreds of city-run testing locations where New Yorkers can get tested at no cost or pick up free at-home tests, including through Test & Treat’s network of approximately 260 walk-up sites at public libraries, cultural institutions and NYC Parks locations.

All city-run sites operate at no-cost to the test seeker and none of them require ID.

Additionally, you can pick-up free at-home test kits at any one of our hundreds of participating distribution sites.

To find a testing or at-home kit pickup site near you, visit or call 311.

Long COVID Resources

People with COVID-19 generally recover within weeks of illness, but some people experience ongoing issues as a result of their infection. If you believe you may have Long COVID, we have resources available for you, including Test & Treat's AfterCare program and NYC Health + Hospitals Centers of Excellence:

  • Long COVID is a wide range of new, returning, or ongoing health conditions people can experience four or more weeks after contracting COVID-19. Long COVID symptoms vary from person to person and may be present for different lengths of time and can include: fatigue, chest pain, shortness of breath, muscle weakness, anxiety, or depression.
  • To be connected with an AfterCare Navigator or an NYC Health + Hospitals Center of Excellence, call 212-COVID19 and select 4.
  • You can also use the AfterCare survey to find a list of health and social needs resources specific to you.

Multi-agency Leadership Team

The NYC Test & Treat Corps is led by NYC Health + Hospitals, working with other agencies, including the NYC Department of Health and Mental Hygiene, the Office of Information Technology and Innovation, the Mayor's Office, the Economic Development Corporation, and more.
