New York City started Phase 1 of its reopening today and city officials are calling on all New Yorkers to get tested.

The city has significantly ramped up its testing capacity–as officials works toward a full reopening.

Previously, only the elderly, those with underlying conditions, first responders and health care workers could be tested. Now, all New Yorkers — especially those who have participated in a protest over the past few days — are encouraged to be tested for COVID-19.

COVID-19 testing is free and has no out-of-pocket cost for those with insurance.

Most test results are available within 48 hours.
