In response to areas in New York City experiencing increased COVID-19 activity requiring local rollbacks of reopening, the New York City Department of Health and Mental Hygiene (DOHMH) updated its guidance on diagnostic testing and screening recommendations for providers. The updated guidance encourages providers with patients who live and work in areas of increased COVID-19 who have not had a positive test in the last 90 days to be tested immediately for COVID-19, even if they have no symptoms or known exposure.

Providers can check this New York City website for current areas with increased COVID-19 transmission.
