Check If Your Home, School or Business Falls Within a COVID Shutdown Zone

COVID-19 Cluster zones (COVID-19 Zone Finder)

Oct. 8, 2020 By Allie Griffin

City Hall has launched a searchable map where New Yorkers can plug in the address of their home, school, job or favorite local business and find out whether they are located within a COVID shutdown zone.

The city created the “COVID-19 Zone Finder” after Governor Andrew Cuomo unveiled a new map Tuesday depicting coronavirus clusters and color-coated zones, where different restrictions apply.

The zone boundaries are based on test results on a granular basis. Therefore the zones focus on streets and blocks–instead of ZIP codes, which are more broadly drawn.

The boundaries have split several neighborhoods into separate zones and caused confusion. Many residents who live and work within the affected areas have been left guessing.

Now, residents can quickly find out which zone they live in by simply typing in their address into the city’s map portal.

The online tool can also help people learn what zone their favorite restaurant is in.

Nonessential businesses in red zones closed today and restaurants within red zones are open for takeout only, under the state regulations.

High risk businesses, like gyms and personal care services, closed in orange zones today, where restaurants are open for outdoor dining only.

Schools in both red and orange zones also closed today if they weren’t already shuttered.

Below is the list of regulations for each color zone. The regulations can also be found on the city’s COVID-19 Zone Finder.
