Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19)

COVID-19 Contact Tracing
If you have tested positive for COVID-19, or have been identified as a contact, you will get a call from “NYS Contact Tracing” (518-387-9993). Because the disease can be transmitted without symptoms, speaking with people who test positive and notifying people about a possible exposure is critical to stop the spread. So, if you get a call from “NYS Contact Tracing” (518-387-9993), please answer the phone so we can keep NY and Westchester moving forward and stop the spread of COVID-19. Learn more about how Contact Tracing works and how to become a Contact Tracing Team Member.

FDA Hand Sanitizer Warning
FDA is warning consumers and health care providers that the agency has seen a sharp increase in hand sanitizer products that are labeled to contain ethanol (also known as ethyl alcohol) but that have tested positive for methanol or 1-propanol contamination. Consumers who have products on the list of hand sanitizers with potential methanol or 1-propanol contamination should immediately stop using the product and dispose of it, ideally in a hazardous waste container. Do not pour these products down the drain or flush them.
