Important Information on COVID-19

Our number one priority during this time is to make sure everyone helps mitigate the spread of COVID-19 in New York’s 19th District and across the country.

The Delgado for Congress campaign is doing our part by canceling all in-person events, moving to a digital operation, and supporting local efforts to help those in need.

If your intention was to visit Congressman Delgado’s official House of Representatives website for the latest on COVID-19, please click here.

For the latest information and guidelines on COVID-19, please visit the websites of the New York Department of Health or the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

Governor Andrew Cuomo has launched a comprehensive website for residents to have the most accurate and up-to-date information about COVID-19 and the state’s response, which you can visit by clicking here.

You can also sign up for email updates on the state’s COVID-19 response by clicking here.

To answer questions regarding your right to testing, paid sick leave, unemployment benefits, health insurance, mortgage, rent, and utility bill relief, and protection from price gouging, New York has put these answers on a single easy-to-navigate website.
