In general, people who had COVID-19 in the past 3 months and recovered and people who are fully vaccinated against COVID-19 do not need to be tested, unless they have COVID-19 symptoms. If you have symptoms, be sure to get tested as soon as possible.

Continue to Take Precautions!
COVID-19 is still here, which means we all must continue to take precautions to prevent the spread. Everyone, including those of us who are fully vaccinated, should continue to wear a mask when outside the home, especially if you can't keep at least 6 feet of distance from others. Learn more here (https://www1.nyc.gov/site/doh/covid/covid-19-prevention-and-care.page) .

If you have symptoms of COVID-19, stay home. Do not leave home except to get essential medical care (including testing for COVID-19) or to get basic needs such as groceries, if someone can not get them for you. Learn more here (https://www1.nyc.gov/site/doh/covid/covid-19-symptoms-chronic-health-risks.page) .

** DVS Commissioner Hendon
on the Derek Chauvin Verdict
------------------------------------------------------------
https://nycveterans.medium.com/nyc-department-of-veterans-services-commissioner-on-the-derek-chauvin-verdict-29f880b6c859
"It signals that the country is slowly moving towards being a place where my life as a Black person has value equal to that of someone else."
Since the founding of our nation, Americans from groups that have been historically oppressed or discriminated against who serve in the military almost all ask themselves, at some point, deep down inside, “Why us? Why are we disproportionately treated this way? What did we as a group do to you?” There are logical, fact-based answers to these questions—all rooted in America’s history—and ways to systemically characterize things that remove emotion. The feelings behind these thoughts—the soul-searching meditation on the question of “why”—remains the same.

To this point, the recent verdict in Minneapolis, Minnesota, for which Derek Chauvin was found guilty of murdering George Floyd accomplishes three things.

One, it underscores every Soldier, Sailor, Marine, Airman, and Coast Guardsman’s resolve to fight and die for this country even when those of us who are underrepresented—particularly those of us who are Black—feel its proverbial knee on the back of our necks. We believe in everything that America can be, and we fight for it no matter what.

Two, the verdict and the battle for justice leading up to it remind us fundamentally that, not only in terms of national security but also domestically, freedom is not free. No one has yet to fully resolve the American experiment. The act of ensuring that the United States is a place where everyone—regardless of race, gender, religion, ethnicity, national origin, disability, age, or sexual orientation—can equally excel is an ongoing struggle. It is ill-informed to believe that work no longer needs to be done on this endeavor. Every generation has fought towards this. The continued firmament of a multiracial, multiethnic, multicultural democracy is our generation’s fight.

Three, steps forward like this take some—just some—of the sting away from meditative questions rooted in “Why?” It signals that the country is slowly moving towards being a place where my life as a Black person has value equal to that of someone else. This equation was never in balance for our ancestors. Currently, it is not in balance for most people who look like me. I have hope because, one travail at a time, we are taking measures towards making this a reality for our descendants—and future Minority Veterans.”

James Hendon is the Commissioner of the NYC Department of Veterans’ Services and a Lieutenant Colonel in the US Army Reserve.


** A Message from J.R. Martinez

https://youtu.be/-NqI3MNwe64
J.R. Martinez encourages NYC veterans, military families, caregivers, and active duty service members to take the Veteran and Military Community Survey.

J.R. Martinez (https://jrmartinez.com/) - U.S. Army veteran, motivational speaker, and Dancing with the Stars winner - has an important message (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-NqI3MNwe64) for all NYC veterans, military families, and active duty service members:

“I’m encouraging you to take NYC’s Veteran and Military Community Survey (https://polco.us/n/res/vote/nyc-department-of-veterans-services/nyc-veteran-and-military) .

By taking part, you will ensure that New York City continues to provide top-notch care to those who sacrificed to protect our country.”

Per the Small Business Administration (SBA), veterans are 45% more likely to be self-employed than non-veterans (https://www.sba.gov/content/facts-veterans-and-entrepreneurship#:~:text=The%20U.S.%20Small%20Business%20Administration%20(SBA)%20recognizes%20the%20impact%20that,have%20on%20the%20American%20economy.&text=A%20recent%20SBA%20study%20also,%2Demployed%20than%20non%2Dveterans.) , likely because they return from the military with the skills necessary to become successful entrepreneurs and business owners.

DVS is devoted to promoting veteran entrepreneurship and supporting veteran-owned businesses (VOBs). That's why we're
launching an online interactive map that will help New Yorkers find VOBs in their community.
