What should I do if I test positive?2021-02-18T17:45:51-05:00

If you tested positive, you will get a call from a public health representative to identify people you have been in contact with- this is called Contact Tracing.

You can use the NY Health Department’s Contact Tracing Tool to keep track of people you were in close contact with, and to prepare for the contact tracing call.

What’s the difference between a diagnostic test and an antibody test?2021-02-18T17:52:07-05:00

Diagnostic (viral) tests swab your respiratory system (usually inside your nose) to tell if you currently have COVID-19.

Antibody tests check your blood to see whether your immune system has fought COVID-19 to tell if you have had COVID-19, with or without symptoms.
