This Week's Resources

If you have resources to share with our network, please contact Tobi Mojeed-Balogun our Associate Director of Programs Support.


NYS COVID Mandate Updates


A lot of the news around mandates and restrictions have been a little confusing so I will list some resources below that might help.

  • PIX11 COVID Updates - kind of NYC-centric but state information is sometimes included. Link here.

  • NYS Department of Health COVID website - It's a one stop shop with an info summary at the top. Link here.

  • Walgreens COVID Index - there's concerns about the accuracy of some COVID trackers but Wallgreens released one based on their tests. Link here.

  • NYS Vaccine Website - Immunocompromised and high-risk folks are eligible for more boosters. Check here to see the requirements.

  • Antiviral treatments are accessible to eligible people who are COVID-positive. Visit this link to learn more about eligibility and how to get access to antivirals like Paxlovid


If you have any other resources, please feel free to share them with me so I can share them with everyone!


Monkeypox Virus Information


As monkeypox continues to grab headlines, I have included some resources I found that might be helpful.

  • NYC Department of Health Monkeypox Webpage - lots of information and resources about the virus with pictures of the rash included. Find the link here.

  • NYC Monkeypox vaccine Scheduling Website - Link Here

  • Article on Monkeypox by Documented - "As monkeypox cases in New York City continue to rise, New Yorkers have inquired about this type of orthopoxvirus and how to get the vaccine. Here is what you need to know." (article will be updated as new info comes) - Read more here.
