The COVID-19 diagnostic test is used to determine if you currently have COVID-19.

Testing is safe and easy. It involves checking samples collected from your nose or mouth with a swab or from your saliva.

Diagnostic tests don’t test for immunity or tell you if you had the virus in the past. If you were sick and have now recovered and want to be tested, you should take an antibody test instead.

Who Should Get Tested

All New Yorkers should get a diagnostic test now, whether or not you have symptoms or are at increased risk.

If your first COVID-19 diagnostic test is negative, you should get tested again if you:

  • Have COVID-19 symptoms
  • Spent time in a large crowd or attended an indoor gathering of 50 or more people
  • Were in close contact with someone with confirmed or possible COVID-19
  • Are concerned about possible exposure
  • Live or work in an area with increased COVID-19 transmission
  • Return from a state with a high level of COVID-19
  • Work in a group setting like a nursing home or shelter
  • Are planning to visit someone at high risk for severe COVID-19 illness

In addition, you should get tested once a month or as recommended by your health care provider if you are:

  • A health care worker or first responder
  • An essential worker with frequent direct contact with the public
  • Working outside the home and interacting in person with others, such as co-workers, clients, customers, or visitors to the workplace
  • Living or working in a group residential setting, such as a long-term care facility

Where to Get Tested

There are many diagnostic testing sites available throughout the City. Some sites are walk-in only and others require an appointment.

You can also find free testing sites near you by texting COVID TEST to 855-48. Text messaging or data rates may apply.

Rapid Testing (PCR)

Rapid COVID-19 virus tests are available at COVID Express sites throughout the city. Test results will be available within 24 hours or less. Most patients will receive their test results on the same day as their visit. All tests performed at these sites are PCR-based laboratory diagnostic tests, which are the most accurate type of test available.

COVID-19 tests performed at COVID Express sites are free to all New Yorkers regardless of immigration status.

Testing is available by appointment only. You can make an appointment online.

Schedule an appointment for a rapid COVID-19 test.

School Staff and Student Priority Testing

Testing is available to students, teachers, and DOE school-based staff at select sites across the city. These sites will give priority to all DOE workers and students so they can quickly be tested, and provide results within 24-48 hours.

NYC Health + Hospitals Sites

Staff from NYC Health + Hospitals give free COVID-19 swab tests at outdoor tents. Self-swab testing is also available. You don't need to make an appointment.

Sites marked with an asterisk * are NYCHA Residents Priority testing sites. At these sites, priority is given to NYCHA residents and nearby residents with risk factors.

Sites marked with a diamond ♦ offer both diagnostic and antibody testing.

Rapid molecular and antigen testing use a swab to collect a sample from the front of the nose. Molecular tests, such as PCR tests, look for the genes of the virus, while antigen testing detects proteins created by the virus. Either one can be used to determine if you have COVID-19. However, a negative result from a rapid test must subsequently be confirmed by the Regular PCR Swab result.
