COVID-19: Providers

General Information for Providers

COVID-19 cases are increasing in New York City, where the highly transmissible delta variant predominates.

The Health Department is monitoring the epidemiology and genetic sequencing of the SARS-CoV-2 virus carefully to enable detection of new patterns or variants, including omicron. Although omicron has not been found in New York City to date, the identification of this variant on multiple continents underscores the urgency of measures to prevent COVID-19.

Remind patients to take the following key steps:

  • Get fully vaccinated against COVID-19
  • Get a booster
  • Everyone — especially people who are immunocompromised or not fully vaccinated — should wear a mask in all indoor public settings and take other precautions to avoid COVID-19 exposure and transmission.
