New York State Contact Tracing
The New York State Contact Tracing Program works with confirmed positive COVID-19 people to determine who they have been in contact with. Trained specialists reach out to those contacts about possible exposure. If you have been identified as a contact you will get a call from “NYS Contact Tracing” (518-387-9993).
Hospital-Based and Community Events
Out of an abundance of caution and in response to the prevalence of coronavirus, all non-essential public events—such as lectures, support groups and other community outreach programs—are canceled.
The region’s need for blood donors continues at this time. Although blood drives originally scheduled to be held at CHS facilities had to be canceled, Long Island Blood Services has extended the hours at its donation centers. You can donate blood by appointment. Please call 800-933-2566 to reserve a time. To ensure your facility is properly credited for donation, please use your appropriate group code below. For further information, visit www.nybloodcenter.org. We respectfully apologize for any inconvenience. Thank you!

The CDC recommends several measures people can take to prevent the spread of coronavirus.
• Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
• Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth with unwashed hands.
• Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 30 seconds. If soap and water are not available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer that contains at least 60% alcohol.
