NIAGARA FALLS, N.Y. (WKBW) — The Community Health Center of Niagara announced the opening of a mobile COVID-19 diagnostic testing site for Niagara County.

The site will conduct weekly diagnostic COVID-19 testing from its mobile unit at 2715 Highland Avenue in Niagara Falls.

"We are excited about this opportunity to increase diagnostic testing in the heart of Niagara Falls," said CEO Dr. LaVonne Ansari.

“Our goal is to help contain the spread of COVID-19 by giving diagnostic test access to many who may have transportation or underlying health issues and who otherwise may not have been able to get a diagnosis until it was too late," said Clement Kwakye, Community Health Center of Niagara Site Director.

Testing will begin at 9 a.m. starting on Thursday, May 7th from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.
