Queens Borough President Donovan Richards on Thursday, Jan. 13, called for the establishment of an NYC Office of COVID Recovery to create a more streamlined and centralized approach toward fighting the COVID-19 pandemic.

The NYC Office of COVID Recovery would strengthen and expand the city’s COVID-19 testing apparatus; improve language access for city residents; foster communication between city agencies and elected officials; and partner with community-based organizations to distribute vaccine incentives and more, according to Richards. The agency would also oversee the Test & Trace Corps, which is currently operated by NYC Health + Hospitals.
