COVID-19 Testing Tracker
- Test results data comes from the Electronic Clinical Laboratory Reporting System (ECLRS), a NYSDOH database that contains reported results from all the labs testing samples from New York State residents. Starting on September 20, 2020, these data also include pooled/batch tests reported by institutions of higher education.
- Positive results on this page represent the first time a person tested positive in New York State. Thus, the information here represents the number of unique persons who have tested positive. Reinfections, or a new positive result 90 days after a first positive result, do rarely occur. In late 2021, the frequency of reinfections increased. Please see our Reinfections Dashboard for more information and data on this topic.
