This Is The Form New Yorkers Will Need To Leave Their Homes During COVID-19

I, [NAME], a resident of [BOROUGH], hereby certify that I am leaving my apartment/brownstone/co-op (circle one) to do the following and ONLY the following:

Circle all that apply

  • To Purchase Groceries and/or Pick Up Prescriptions
  • To Walk the Dog and/or Very Social Cat
  • To Tend to the Community Garden and/or Refill Growler at Local Craft Brewery
  • To Seek Medical Treatment and/or Marijuana
  • OR: I Certify That I Am Required to Travel For My Job and/or Grindr Hook Up

My destination is limited to the following neighborhood:

Circle one based on income bracket

  • Whichever Neighborhood Has the Nearest Foodtown
  • Whichever Neighborhood Has the Nearest Trader Joe’s
  • Whichever Neighborhood Has the Nearest Whole Foods
  • Whichever Neighborhood Has the Nearest Hampton Jitney
  • Whichever Neighborhood Has the Nearest Helipad

In order to prevent and track community spread, I will document any and all modes of travel, including:

Circle all that apply

  • Walking
  • MTA Bus (indicate route)
  • MTA Subway (indicate line)
  • CitiBike (indicate whether you licked the handlebars)
  • Uber/Lyft/Taxi (indicate whether you racially profiled the driver when he coughed)

In addition to all of the above, I hereby assert that I am healthy enough to leave the home and have taken my temperature either with a digital thermometer or by asking a stranger to touch my forehead.

By signing this document I agree to self-report any symptoms, including but not limited to:

Circle all that apply

  • Dry Cough
  • Wet Cough
  • Moist Cough
  • Oh, This Cough? I Always Have This Cough

If I am under the age of 18 this document serves as parental certification that I have completed at least 5 tabs of remote learning and/or Twitch streams before leaving the house.

As a reward I have given permission for the following activity:

Parent/Guardian: Circle and initial only ONE per day

  • Just Chillin
  • Makin Tik Toks
  • Subway Dance Practice
  • Doing Those Drugs From HBO’s Euphoria
  • Anything That Gives Mommy and/or Daddy Some Alone Time

IMPORTANT: If I develop COVID-19 symptoms while in public I give emergency responders permission to take me to:

Circle one based on health coverage

  • The nearest hospital best equipped to treat me
  • The nearest in-network hospital least likely to gouge me with surprise fees
  • The nearest City MD but only if I have enough cash to cover the co-pay
  • The nearest Walgreens so I can ask the pharmacist if Wal-Tussin cures coronavirus
  • The nearest Canadian border crossing



Friendly Reminder: The NYPD may stop you and frisk your person for this form at any time (unless you’re white).
