COVID-19 Testing and Tracing

As the CVOID-19 pandemic continues, 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 or to find a vaccine location. 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 with updated testing and/or vaccine information.

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.

You can also request a free at-home COVID-19 tests here:
