New York City: ADVANCE WARNING SYSTEM (AWS)
CORONAVIRUS INFORMATION, TIPS, AND RESOURCES

As you are aware, the City is currently responding to COVID-19, also known as coronavirus. We want to make sure that our partners, and the New Yorkers that your organization interacts with, are provided with the most up-to-date information.
With that in mind, please see these resources:

  1. A two-page fact sheet from the New York City Department of Health and Mental Hygiene, provided here
  2. A short flyer
  3. Guidance from the CDC

Please feel free to distribute these documents via the various outreach methods that your organization employs (i.e. post at entrances to all agency buildings, hand out at public events, etc.).

It is very important that this information is made widely and quickly available to the New Yorkers that your organization interacts with. Please prioritize this outreach. We will be providing translations of these documents in the near future.

In addition, CDC has created several new landing pages for specific response groups on the CDC COVID-19 website. Please find the link to preventing the spread in communities  here .

You can also visit  NYC.gov/coronavirus  for additional information from the NYC Department of Health and Mental Hygiene.

Thank you,

NYC Emergency Management
