Presenting Positive Test Results for Treatment

Presenting Positive Test Results for Treatment

New Yorkers may now present proof of a positive test —  including at-home test results and test results from any external testing provider —  at all mobile Test to Treat units to be evaluated for and prescribed COVID treatments on site.

Accepted proof of positive test results include:

  • Digital or print copies of rapid antigen or PCR lab test results from all external testing providers
  • Photos or physical copies of at-home test strips

Please note: All external and at-home tests presented at NYC Test & Treat Corps mobile testing units must be taken within the past 5 days.

Mobile Test to Treat units will not accept verbal self-reports as proof of a positive test.

Patients presenting proof of a positive test result at a mobile Test to Treat unit will be “pre-screened” for symptoms, including if they currently have symptoms and if their symptoms began within the past 5 days.

Patients must answer “yes” to both pre-screening questions to be evaluated for a Paxlovid prescription.

If a patient does not have proof of a positive test result, they can take a rapid test at the mobile Test to Treat unit.

Use the City’s COVID-19 Test Site Finder to find a no-cost, City-run site most convenient to you, including a search filter to find the NYC Test & Treat Corps’ mobile Test-to-Treat units and free at-home test distribution sites.
