On Friday, New York State Sen. Sean Ryan delivered personal protective equipment to community partners throughout New York’s 60th State Senate District. The supplies included rapid at-home coronavirus test kits and KN95 masks. The organizations receiving the masks and tests will distribute them to their communities based on need.

Ryan began the day by joining Assembly member Jon Rivera to deliver supplies to West Side Community Services on Vermont Street in Buffalo. He then visited FeedBuffalo on Massachusetts Avenue before traveling to Catholic Charities Food Pantry on Delaware Avenue in Tonawanda. The remainder of the supplies were donated to the Grand Island Golden Age Senior Center, the Hamburg Senior Center, and the Village of Hamburg Recreation Department.

Families still seeking at-home COVID-19 tests can visit covidtests.gov. Every home in the U.S. is eligible to order four free at-⁠home tests courtesy of the federal government. Orders typically ship within two weeks of the order date via the U.S. Postal Service.

•A member of Ryan’s staff will visit Grand Island from 11 a.m. to noon Tuesday, Feb. 1, to provide an opportunity for constituents to meet face-to-face with questions or concerns for the senator. Mobile office hour will take place at the Grand Island Memorial Library, 1715 Bedell Road. Attendees should follow COVID-19 protocols and wear a face covering.
