Governor Cuomo: “COVID-19 has been an unimaginable tragedy throughout this nation, and as New York State went through what was, at the time, America’s worst spike, states around the country showed incredible generosity and kindness towards New Yorkers that we will never forget. We are glad to be able to return the favor wherever it’s needed, and I am heartened to see the Kingdom Life Christian Fellowship testing site open for our brothers and sisters in Savannah as they contend with this destructive pandemic.”
On Monday, Governor Andrew M. Cuomo announced that New York State would establish two testing sites in COVID-19 Hotspots in Savannah, Georgia. The site located in Kingdom Life Christian Fellowship is now open and serving the community. Both sites are located in highly-impacted minority communities. The governor made the announcement with Savannah Mayor Van R. Johnson, II.
