COVID-19 TESTING INFORMATION

For immediate release:

Greene County Public Health Department (GCPHD) in partnership with the Town of Hunter’s Supervisor and staff will be conducting a COVID-19 testing site for Greene County residents on Wednesday, December 2nd from 3-5pm at the Town of Hunter government building located at 5748 Route 23A.  Testing is by appointment only with a limited number of slots available since prioritization is given to those who are symptomatic; need a test to return to work or school; nursing home visitation; or have been notified by the GCPHD as being a close contact to a confirmed positive case. Travelers or asymptomatic folks (without symptoms) will NOT be tested at this site due to laboratory policies, but GCPHD can give alternate testing site information by calling 518-719-3600.

To register:  Please call GCPHD at 518-719-3600 and a representative will take your information.  The deadline to register is Tuesday, December 1st by 3pm. You must be registered to attend this testing site.

On the day of testing, you must bring a photo ID indicating your permanent Greene County address. You will be directed to stay in your vehicle and follow traffic flow thru the test site, and if asymptomatic, when to leave your vehicle to walk into the building for testing.  Symptomatic individuals will remain in their vehicle at all times and will be directed where to go. Security will be on-site to assist with traffic flow and to assure the safety of all vehicles, individuals and staff.  After leaving the testing site, residents with symptoms should drive directly home for self-quarantine until the results are shared with them.  It may take a few days to receive the test results, but once obtained from the lab, a GCPHD staff member will call the residents with their results. For those with positive results, further instructions on Isolation measures will be given.
