CITY REACHES MILESTONE OF TESTING 20,000 NEW YORKERS PER DAY AND TRIPLES NUMBER OF AVAILABLE TESTING SITES WITH CITYMD 

All CityMD sites citywide to offer COVID-19 testing 

 

NEW YORK—Mayor de Blasio announced today that the City will partner with CityMD to offer walk-in diagnostic COVID-19 testing to New Yorkers, effectively tripling the number of available testing sites citywide. The City has now reached its goal to test 20,000 New Yorkers per day one week ahead of schedule, building on the commitment to test and trace every positive case of COVID-19.

Diagnostic PCR tests will be offered in conjunction with a doctor visit at CityMD locations citywide. Regardless of insurance coverage, there is no out of pocket cost to patients for the test, and the costs of any uninsured New Yorker will be covered free of charge. Tests are offered 7 days per week with no appointment necessary.
