(WSYR-TV) — Central New Yorkers in the Syracuse area and the Finger Lakes now have two new sites to get tested for COVID-19. 

The F-Shed on Park Street in Syracuse and the YMCA in Rochester will open Tuesday. It comes as part of six new State testing sites to address the recent surge in COVID-19 cases. These sites are aimed providing additional testing options in areas of high need throughout the Capital, Central New York, Finger Lakes, Hudson Valley and Western New York regions.     

“We want to start the New Year strong and use every tool at our disposal,” Governor Hochul said. “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.”      

New Yorkers are strongly encouraged to make appointments here. Test results are sent following the appointment through email or text message. Walk-in appointments will also be available.
