All New Yorkers should get tested for COVID-19, whether or not you have symptoms or are at increased risk.
What to Do If You Are Sick
You should get tested now if you have symptoms – regardless of age, chronic conditions or occupation – and then stay home.
People with COVID-19 have reported a wide range of symptoms. Symptoms may appear two to 14 days after exposure to the virus and commonly include:
This list is not all inclusive. Other less common symptoms have been reported, including gastrointestinal symptoms like nausea, vomiting or diarrhea. Older adults may show confusion or disorientation and experience falls.
NYC will now be using an alert level system to better help New Yorkers understand the current level of COVID-19 risk and how they can best protect themselves and others.
The Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine is now available for children ages 5 to 11. The vaccine dose for this age group is smaller than the dose given to people 12 and older.
Children can get vaccinated at their doctor's office, pharmacies and vaccine sites across the city.
Vaccine booster shots are now authorized for everyone 12 and older who is fully vaccinated.
If you were recently sick or tested positive for COVID-19, you can get your booster shot after your isolation period ends.
