Today, New York City Mayor Eric Adams and Office of Labor Relations Commissioner Renee Campion announced that in addition to the citywide COVID-19 testing available for all New Yorkers, exclusive testing sites will be available to City workers through WorkWell NYC, the City’s wellness program for municipal employees. Testing sites will be available in all five boroughs and are appointment-only. Testing is at no cost.
“We know that testing is a critical tool in stopping the spread of COVID-19 and protecting all New Yorkers,” said Mayor Adams. “These new testing sites show that we are leading by example to create safe environments for all City employees.”
“Keeping our workforce safe is our top priority,” said Commissioner Campion. “We are thrilled to announce this initiative, which will provide additional testing for the convenience of our workers.”
Testing is available for employees who have been exposed to COVID-19 but do not have symptoms. Employees who have symptoms are encouraged to stay home and self-isolate. More information on testing site locations and appointments is available here.
