Wayne County Public Health is partnering with Finger Lakes Community Health to provide free COVID-19 testing for the public on December 30, 2020.
Finger Lakes Health is organizing asymptomatic testing opportunities for residents in the 4 counties, including Wayne.
“Testing availability for asymptomatic people has been challenging for our rural communities and we are pleased to be able to provide increased access to testing for our residents,” said Wayne County Public Health Deputy Director, Kerry VanAuken. Finger Lakes Community Health will offer rapid testing to anyone regardless of their county of residence and free of charge on December 30th, at their Newark, NY location.
Pre-registration is required.
Test results will be communicated within 24 hours. VanAuken further stated, “Dates and times may change due to scheduling and staffing, but all four of the participating counties are committed to providing these additional offerings to our residents.”
Testing in Wayne County will be offered this Wednesday 12/30 from 9:00 am-11:00 am at Finger Lakes Health’s Newark office located at 513 West Union St. in the Cannery Row Mall. The link to preregister is https://localcommunityhealth.com/
