As we get deeper into late fall and winter, it’s more important for those of us with disabilities and chronic diseases to continue practicing COVID-prevention measures and get tested for COVID-19. CIDNY has been working with NYC Health + Hospitals (H+H) to promote the importance of being tested.

COVID-19 tests are free at many locations across New York City. No appointments are necessary at H+H sites. You can text ‘COVID TEST’ to 855-48 on your mobile phone or go to to find a free testing location near you. At this time, we are unable to confirm accessibility for each location and recommend calling ahead to confirm accessibility, when possible.

Free, walk-in testing is available at these NYC Health + Hospitals locations. Clicking the links below will take you to the NYC Health + Hospitals website.

Each week we email a list of mobile testing locations across NYC. If you would like to receive these emails or would like to talk to someone about testing and tracing, please email You can also tell your CIDNY counselor that you would like to talk to someone about COVID-19.

Mobile testing sites are usually open Monday-Friday from 10:00am – 4:00pm unless otherwise noted.

Sites and times are subject to change, especially due to inclement weather. At this time we are unable to confirm accessibility.

The following is a list of COVID-19 mobile-testing, self-testing, and rapid-testing locations for the week of April 19, 2021. New listings coming soon when available. Please visit for the most recent updates.
