COVID-19, the disease caused by the coronavirus, is extremely contagious, meaning that it is easily transmitted from one person to another.

If you tested positive for COVID-19 or think you might have it because of your symptoms, it is very important that you do not come in close contact with others, including people you may live with. This is called “self-isolation.” 

You may qualify to self-isolate in a hotel, free of charge, for up to 14 days if you do not have a safe place to self-isolate.

This can mean:

  • Your home does not have space for you to stay six feet away from others
  • You share rooms or a bathroom
  • You live with someone who is vulnerable

Hotel rooms are also available for New Yorkers without COVID-19 but who live with someone who has COVID-19.

This program, including food, linens, and local phone service, is free for eligible New Yorkers.

If you are currently at your home and think you may have COVID-19, call your health provider and they can refer you to the Health + Hospitals Take Care Hotel Program.

If you are experiencing symptoms and don't have a health care provider, you can call H +H. A medical provider will assess your situation and then refer you to a hotel if appropriate.

Call 311 for assistance.
