The City has set up a COVID-19 Isolation Hotel Program for those who test positive for COVID-19, but may not have a safe place to self-isolate. You may qualify to self-isolate in a hotel, free of charge, for up to 14 days if:

  • 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. If you are currently at your home and think you may have COVID-19, you can call 311 or 844-NYC-4NYC (1-844-692-4692) between the hours of 9:00am and 9:00pm. A medical provider will assess your situation and then refer you to a hotel if appropriate. Learn more here.
