Resources to Separate Safely at Home
The NYC Test & Trace Corps will make sure that anyone who has COVID-19, or has been in contact with someone with COVID-19, has the resources to safely separate at home. To do so, we work with resource navigators from community-based organizations in your neighborhood.
To contact a resource navigator, call( ), press 5 for help to safely separate, and press 5 to leave a voicemail for other resources. A resource navigator will call you back.
If you are part of the Test and Trace program you can ask your Case Investigator or Monitor to speak with a resource navigator at any time.
Speaking with a resource navigator will not change your ability to apply for permanent residency (or “green card”). If you have questions about your immigration status, call the ActionNYC hotline atand say “public charge” from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m., Monday to Friday.
