COVID-19: Rapid Testing

Text reads, COVID-19 Express testing now available!

[ Ver esta página en español ]

You can now make an appointment for a free rapid COVID-19 virus test at COVID Express Quickie Lab sites throughout the city. Test results will be available within 24 hours or less of your visit. This means that 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.

Some of the other services usually provided at these facilities will still be available. Get more information about available clinic services on the NYC Health Clinics webpage.

How to Schedule and Get Results

Testing will be available by appointment only. The fastest way to make an appointment is to choose a time through our online scheduler below. There is no need to get tested again within 90 days of a positive test.

After your test, you can get your results:

  • Online by creating a MyChart account.
    • You cannot create an account until you have had your COVID-19 test. You may also already have an existing account from a previous visit to an NYC Health + Hospitals facility.
  • By returning to the clinic two to three business days after your test to pick up printed results.

If you test positive, you will also receive a call from the clinic.

Schedule Your Appointment
