Answer

Based on APA 7th ed., rule 8.25, p. 270, "When quoting directly, always provide the author, year, and page number of the quotation in the in-text citation in either parenthetical or narrative format (See Section 8.11). To indicate a single page, use the abbreviation "p." (e.g., p. 25, p.S41, p.e211); for multiple pages, use the abbreviation "pp." and separate the page range with an en dash (e.g., pp. 34-36)."

The manual does state that while "it is not required to provide a page or paragraph number in the citation for a paraphrase, you may include one in addition to the author and year when it would help interested readers locate the relevant passage within a long or complex work (e.g., a book)." (APA 7th ed. Rule 8.23, p. 269).
