NYC Announces Universal COVID Testing

What to Know

  • The city has announced universal COVID-19 testing for all New Yorkers, courtesy of the Test & Trace Corps initiative
  • The initiative, which launched Monday, will allow New York City to safely care for those who test positive for the virus, and then rapidly track, assess, and quarantine anyone they came into contact with and may have infected

The city has announced universal COVID-19 testing for all New Yorkers, courtesy of the Test & Trace Corps initiative.  The initiative, which launched Monday, will allow New York City to safely care for those who test positive for the virus, and then rapidly track, assess, and quarantine anyone they came into contact with and may have infected. 

Any New Yorker can now get tested at one of the over 150 testing sites citywide.  New Yorkers can visit or call 311 to find the sites nearest them. 

Additionally, to ensure the Corps can meet the diverse needs of New Yorkers from all backgrounds, 40 distinct languages are spoken by tracers across the Corps.

Govenor Cuomo Signs Covid-19 Death Benefit Bill

Legislation granting new accidental death benefits to public workers who died after contracting COVID-19 was signed into law by Gov. Cuomo today.

The pension legislation enables a beneficiary to receive half-salary payments for life. That could be much more advantageous than the other applicable option in New York State pension law: up to three years’ pay in one lump sum. Both options are in addition to the $500,000 per transit family that the TWU secured in negotiations with the MTA.


We would like to thank Assemblyman Peter Abbate and Sen. Andrew Gounardes for introducing the accidental death benefit legislation in the state Assembly and Senate.

Temporary Suspension of the 30-Day Filing Requirement

*** Up-date ***

At the May 20th MTA Board Meeting the filing waiver was extended to June 7, 2020.

This is to announce that MTA Senior Management has agreed to implement the principles of the Governor’s Executive Order 202.18, issued April 16, 2020, allowing for immediate service retirements in the New York State and Local Retirement System (NYSLRS). This means that the Metropolitan Transportation Authority Defined Benefit Pension Plan (MTA DB) provisions requiring a member to file their retirement application at least 30 days in advance of retirement, will be waived for the period April 16, 2020 through May 16, 2020. If the waiver period is extended by the Governor or the State Comptroller, the MTA DB Plan will extend the waiver for the concurrent period.

The effect of the waiver is to allow a member to file a completed application, and retire the next day or a date in the future. The intent of the waiver is to recognize the immediate health circumstances affecting our members during the pandemic crisis. To further assist members and their families, they will allow completed applications to be filed by paper application, or by email to, as long as the original hard copy is mailed to the Consolidated Pension Office.

Donate COVID-19 Plasma

If you have fully recovered from COVID-19, you may be able to help patients currently fighting the infection by donating your plasma. Because you fought the infection, your plasma now contains COVID-19 antibodies. These antibodies provided one way for your immune system to fight the virus when you were sick, so your plasma may be able to be used to help others fight off the disease

Transit Workers Eligible for State's Covid-19 Antibody Testing

We are pleased to inform you that the MTA is expanding their antibody testing program to include Northwell Health-GoHealth and BioReference Laboratories.

Beginning Monday, May 18th, you will be able to get a free test at 52 Northwell Health-GoHealth Urgent Care facilities in the New York metropolitan region. You can schedule your test beginning today at or by calling 718-987-4893. Northwell Health-GoHealth facilities are open from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. on weekdays and 9 5 p.m. on weekends.

BioReference Laboratories, which has been testing employees at various MTA locations, will continue to do so. To register for the tests, visit and select an available time slot at one of the identified testing locations. You must use Chrome, Safari or Firefox browsers to access this website.

Since April 29th, BioReference has tested approximately 7,800 MTA employees.
Individuals currently exhibiting COVID-19 symptoms (e.g. temperature above 100.4 degrees Fahrenheit, dry cough, shortness of breath, etc.) cannot receive antibody testing. The antibody test provides the most accurate results when done 21 to 28 days after exposure to COVID-19. This is the time the body needs to make antibodies in the blood after exposure to the disease. All other asymptomatic employees who have not been diagnosed with COVID-19 are eligible for testing.

All test results will be shared with the MTA and kept confidential, unless declined by the employee.  The Union is encouraging thier member to share this important information with the MTA to help guide their reopening decisions.
