Tue, Jan 4th 2022 07:45 pm

Additional testing sites to open week of Jan. 10

Gov. Kathy Hochul on Tuesday announced 10 SUNY campus-based COVID-19 test sites will open beginning Jan. 6. Additionally, the governor announced the second round of sites slated to open the week of Jan. 10.

"As we continue to combat the winter surge, it is essential that we provide more access to testing for New Yorkers to help limit the spread of this virus," Hochul said. "With 10 sites opening by the end of this week and additional sites by the end of the next, we are quickly ramping up our ability to focus our resources where they are needed. While testing is critically important, we must ensure we continue to focus on all the tools available to us: get vaccinated, get boosted, and wear a mask."

Beginning Thursday, the following local sites will open and provide appointment-based and walk-in COVID-19 testing from 8:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. weekdays:
