ALBANY, N.Y. (WROC) — During his briefing Wednesday morning, Gov. Andrew Cuomo announced the state would be expanding free COVID-19 testing to all New Yorkers.
Testing is free to all eligible New York residents as ordered by a health care provider or by calling the NYS COVID-19 hotline at 1-888-364-3065.
All state-run testing sites are free for residents. Those going to test sites operated by local governments, private companies including pharmacies and medical practices or not-for-profit organizations, should check with the testing site and insurer in advance of being tested to confirm they will not be responsible for any fees associated with the test.
