We want to start the New Year strong and use every tool at our disposal. 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.
- Gov. Hochul

The governor's office said additional sites are being planned throughout throughout the state, you can find the testing site nearest to you here.

Under Governor Hochul’s leadership, we continue the important work of expanding access to quick, accessible testing throughout the State. In partnership with WellHealth, these six new sites will bring even more rapid tests to New Yorkers. Rapid testing remains a critical tool in our toolkit as we combat the winter surge and work to keep our communities safe from spread – and I encourage New Yorkers to utilize these new sites.
