Your responses will help our community organizations, government and hospitals identify and prioritize the next steps for a safe New York.

Tell us your needs

Explore data as NYC reopens

What will it take for New York City to open safely for everybody? In the new normal, there’s a lot we don’t know yet. If we want government and business to make smart decisions, we have to tell them what we need. We have to share what is and is not working for our families and communities.

You can respond to the CovidWatcher surveys anonymously on the Web or through the CovidWatcher app (iOS or Android). CovidWatcher is a research project approved by Columbia University Institutional Review Board (Protocol #AAAS9690). All survey answers are kept on private, secure servers and no personal information is distributed.
