What happens if I or someone I know tests positive for COVID-19?

The New York State Department of Health is following the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s (CDC) case investigation and contact tracing guidance, which focuses on providing information to those who tested positive most recently and those who may have close contacts in sensitive settings.

To learn what to do if you test positive for COVID-19, are exposed to COVID-19, and your responsibilities when it comes to isolation and quarantine, visit the New York State Department of Health’s website on contact tracing for definitions, documentation, and answers to your frequently asked questions.
