New Data

Our Data webpages now feature a focus on recent data (from the last four weeks) and include antibody test results by ZIP code, organized by various demographics.

We have also updated our Milestones indicators to more clearly show if the city's low transmission rates start to go back up.


The city is reopening, but there is still transmission of COVID-19 in New York City.

Getting Together Safely

In addition to following our general COVID-19 prevention guidance, stay cautious when you meet up with friends. Avoid indoor activities and stay away from big groups by sticking to a core group of friends and family — your pandemic "social bubble." You should only play sports and games with others when you can stay 6 feet apart and wear face coverings.

Here are some more tips to help you stay safe as you move about the city this summer.

When you go to the gym:

  • Wear a face covering that covers your nose and mouth at all times. Bandanas, buffs and gaiters are not acceptable face coverings while at the gym.
  • Refrain from socializing. Keep at least 6 feet away from other gym-goers.

When you eat out:

  • Do not wait. Make a reservation, check out the menu online and do whatever else you can to avoid long wait times before you get a table and order.
  • Keep your face covering on at all times when you are not eating and drinking.

When you shop:

  • Use hand sanitizer when entering the store, after touching products and after leaving the store.

Get Tested
All New Yorkers should get a COVID-19 diagnostic test, whether or not they have symptoms or are at increased risk. Tests are free. Look for a testing site near you.

Get Medical Care

Do not delay getting the medical care you need. Contact your provider quickly about any new symptoms you are feeling, whether or not you think they may be related to COVID-19.

You should also go to routine check-ups and screenings, and get scheduled vaccinations for you and your children. If you think you are having a medical emergency, call 911.
