With support from NYSDOH, the ECDOH has established sites for point-of-care testing to identify COVID cases in school settings. At this time, the ECDOH will offer scheduled appointments for this testing to:
Symptomatic students who attend any in-person classes in a school grades pre-K - 12 (if all virtual classes and in person sports – not eligible)
Symptomatic school employees (must bring a school ID)
The ECDOH will have three sites set up from 9 a.m. - 1 p.m. each weekday at a Northtowns, Central and Southtowns location starting 9/28. These appointments can be scheduled by calling 716-858-2929, the Erie County COVID-19 Information Line. They plan to open scheduling two days in advance; anyone who they cannot accommodate will be offered an appointment through our regular drive-through sites.
