NYC prepares to open more testing sites for COVID-19

As COVID cases continue to rise in the city and state, the need for testing becomes more urgent.

For this reason, more COVID testing sites will open in Queens and the rest of the city starting tomorrow.


Culture Lab in Long Island City will be open tomorrow from 8 a.m. to 7 p.m.

Another site on the Beach Channel education campus in Far Rockaway will be open from 7:30 a.m. to 7 p.m.

Both will offer free PCR tests.

Those other locations will be at:

  • St. Mary’s Rec Center, in The Bronx
  • Canarsie High School y McCarren Rec Center, en Brooklyn
  • Marta Valle High School, in Manhattan
  • Port Richmond High School, on Staten Island.

And also, starting this Monday, the state government will open two test sites in the main transit centers such as Times Square, 42nd Street and Grand Central Terminal.

These sites arrive as New Yorkers continue to wait in long lines to get tested for COVID this holiday weekend.

And precisely to this is added the opening of five new test centers funded by the state. It will be from Wednesday when they open their doors in each of the five boroughs of the city.

From tomorrow the appointment programming will begin and they will remain open from Monday to Saturday:

They will be located in the Kings Plaza shopping center in Brooklyn.

  • The Adam Clayton Powell State Office Building in Manhattan.
  • The York College Center for the Performing Arts in Queens.
  • El Central Family Life Center, en Staten Island.
  • And the Concourse Village Community Center, in the Bronx.
