BUFFALO, N.Y. (WKBW) — Governor Kathy Hochul says several SUNY campus-based COVID-19 test sites will open this week.

"As we continue to combat the winter surge it is essential that we provide more access to testing for New Yorkers to help limit the spread of this virus," Governor Hochul said. "With 10 sites opening by the end of this week and additional sites by the end of the next, we are quickly ramping up our ability to focus our resources where they are needed. While testing is critically important, we must ensure we continue to focus on all the tools available to us: get vaccinated, get boosted, and wear a mask."

In Western New York, the testing sites will open on Friday:

University at Buffalo Community Testing Site
Center for Tomorrow Building
