New York: The NYC Test & Treat Corps, in partnership with the Departments of Finance (DOF) and Small Business Services (SBS), Jan 31 announced the opening of 34 additional walk-up at-home test distribution sites, further expanding the city’s network of over 280 locations where New Yorkers can pick up free at-home rapid testing.
The new walk-up distribution sites will receive an initial allocation of nearly 150,000 at-home rapid tests and include SBS’s Workforce1 Career Centers and Business Solutions Centers in every borough, providing free testing to job seekers and small business owners.
“COVID is still with us and we must continue to take steps to protect ourselves and our communities,” said Deputy Mayor for Health and Human Services Anne Williams-Isom. “At-home tests are a powerful tool in that effort and Test & Treat’s partnerships with the Departments of Finance and Small Business Services will help us keep meeting people where they are in order to keep us all safe and healthy.”
“The Test & Treat Corps’ expansive network of over 280 walk-up sites offering free at-home testing ensures that critical testing resources are near at hand for all New Yorkers,” said Dr. Ted Long, Executive Director, NYC Test & Treat Corps; Senior Vice President for Ambulatory Care and Population Health, NYC Health + Hospitals.
