What can you do to keep  yourself, family and others healthy and aware…
Where to get tested for COVID19.

New Church based COVID-19 Testing Sites

We hope all of you are doing well in these trying times. Starting this week, the Department of Health has partnered with many churches throughout New York City to provide free COVID-19 testing across NYC. This includes antibody and diagnostic testing by appointment only. Details are below and we encourage everyone to pass this information along to their community.
You are required to make an appointment if you want to get tested. The phone number to make an appointment is: (833)-422-7369.
They are providing both antibody (Indicates if you were infected in the past, but not if you are currently infected.) and diagnostic testing (Indicates if you are currently infected, but not if you had COVID-19 in the past.)
Which test you are given depends on your symptoms. The caller will be asked a set of questions from a questionnaire and that will determine your eligibility for either test.
Once you are given an appointment, a representative will give you the time and location for your appointment.
