City of Syracuse to Make Second Round of At-Home Covid-19 Test Kits Available at Neighborhood Centers and to Residents of Twenty-Two Large Senior, Family and Affordable Housing Properties

Syracuse, N.Y. – City of Syracuse will distribute its second allocation of at home COVID-19 test kits through seven neighborhood community centers and to residents of twenty-two large senior, family and affordable housing communities in Syracuse.

“As the Omicron variant continues to drive up cases, we are prioritizing getting these test kits out as quickly and efficiently as possible to vulnerable city residents who may have a difficult time accessing at-home test kits,” said Syracuse Mayor Ben Walsh. “I thank our neighborhood center partners and the residential sites that are helping us make kits available to people in need across the city.  As more kits become available, we will continue to work with the County and State to broaden and expand availability.”

The neighborhood community centers are located throughout Syracuse and provide a wide range of services and support to city residents.  The participating centers are: Syracuse Northeast Community Center, Westcott Community Center, Syracuse Community Connections at Southwest Community Center, Huntington Family Center, Syracuse Dunbar Center, La Liga: Spanish Action League – Onondaga, and North Side Learning Center. Neighborhood community centers will provide kits to their program participants and will conduct walk-up distributions for neighborhood residents on Monday, January 10 beginning at 10:00 a.m. Residents should bring identification for proof of residency at time of pick up.

At-home test kits were also provided to twenty Christopher Community residential properties which serve families and seniors across the City of Syracuse. The large housing sites are Clinton Plaza and Parkside Commons.

This is the second round of at-home COVID test kits distribution. Last week, the City distributed kits to Syracuse Housing Authority residents and City of Syracuse Parks community program participants. City government continues to receive updates from New York State and Onondaga County regarding additional shipments of at-home testing kits and masks, and will share information as it becomes available.
