COVID-19 treatments work best when you receive them as soon as possible after becoming sick, so it's important to get tested and talk to your doctor right away to find the treatment that is best for you.
If you do not have a regular health care provider, you can be evaluated for treatment by either:
Calling 1-888-TREAT-NY (1-888-873-2869), or
- Visiting the NYS COVID-19 ExpressCare Therapeutics Access Website.
If you've been in close contact with someone who has symptoms or tested positive for COVID-19: the CDC no longer recommends quarantining if you are exposed. However, if you were exposed to someone with COVID-19 or have been told by a healthcare provider or public health authority that you were exposed, and you DO NOT have any symptoms, regardless of your vaccination status or if you have had a previous infection you should wear a well-fitting mask for 10 days and get tested at day 5.
