With cases rising among New Yorkers between the ages of 20-29, the city launches a public outreach campaign geared towards younger New Yorkers, including additional mobile testing sites.

Through partnerships with Federally Qualified Health Centers, the City will also open additional testing sites, building on the commitment to make COVID-19 testing as fast and convenient as possible across the five boroughs.

Through a “Night of Action” the city will conduct outreach through popular bars, outdoor restaurants and waterfront locations, offering nearby mobile van testing and mask giveaways. The city will also partner with digital influencers to reach younger New Yorkers across social platforms and share guidance on how to prevent COVID-19.
