Builds on Governor’s Announcement on Wednesday of 13 New Covid-19 Testing Sites Open Across the State Here

Governor Kathy Hochul today announced 6 new State testing sites to address the recent surge in COVID-19 cases. These sites are aimed providing additional testing options in areas of high need throughout the Capital, Central New York, Finger Lakes, Hudson Valley and Western New York regions.

“We want to start the New Year strong and use every tool at our disposal,” Governor Hochul said. “By mobilizing testing sites throughout the state, we will make sure testing is more accessible and convenient for New Yorkers. We will continue to expand testing availability to every corner of the state, evaluating where more capacity and additional sites are needed soon. I encourage every New Yorker to take advantage of a site near them.”

Sites are currently being mobilized with all locations slated to open on January 4, 2022. Upon launch, all sites will offer rapid antigen tests. New Yorkers are strongly encouraged to make appointments here. Test results are sent following the appointment through email or text message. Walk-in appointments will also be available.

WellHealth CEO & Medical Director Dr. Abdul-Ahad Hayee, MD, one of the founding partners of Well Health said, “It is our mission to help as many people as possible find easy, accessible COVID-19 testing sites and deliver quick, accurate results. As the COVID-19 pandemic continues, we are proud to work with New York State and the Department of Health on this partnership to bring six new test sites to New York communities in different locations throughout the state, as we’ve successfully done with so many other states already. We thank Governor Hochul for her leadership in ensuring New Yorkers’ have even more access to testing – helping communities stay safe and stay open.”
