ALBANY, N.Y. (WENY) – New York has launched a new public awareness campaign on treatment options for people who test positive for COVID.

The campaign will run in English and Spanish across TV, radio and digital media, encouraging New Yorkers to test early for COVID-19 and treat it as soon as possible if they test positive.

The campaign features links to resources about COVID-19 treatment options on the State Health Department’s website.

The announcement follows the launch of a new free hotline, announced by Governor Hochul, for those who test positive for COVID-19, but don’t have a health care provider.
