Mobile Test to Treat units, managed by the NYC Test & Treat Corps, provide no-cost instant access to antiviral medication (Paxolvid) 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 prescribed COVID treatments 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.
