COVID rapid testing clinic set for Mayville on Tuesday

OBSERVER File Photo Rapid COVID-19 testing sites will open next week in Jamestown and Dunkirk. The clinics are being made possible through a partnership with a New York state testing initiative.

MAYVILLE — The Chautauqua County Health Department has announced a COVID-19 rapid testing clinic will be held on Tuesday from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Chautauqua County Office of Emergency Services, 2 Academy St.

COVID-19 testing is available to anyone who wants to be tested and is free. Appointments are required; walk-in testing is not available.

The quickest way to get an appointment is to visit https://apps.health.ny.gov/doh2/applinks/cdmspr/2/counties?OpID=1300060 and schedule your appointment online. If you do not have internet access, you may call 1-866-604-6789 for scheduling assistance. However, due to current call volume, it may take some time to get through to a scheduler.

Please note the following: This is a drive through test site. Please enter the location from Academy Street and then follow the signs and directions of the volunteers.

Stay in your vehicle with the windows closed until instructed otherwise. For your safety and the safety of others, do not have an animal in the vehicle with you.

The test being used is the Abbott IDNOW rapid test which tests for whether or not you currently are infected with the COVID-19 virus. After testing, you must remain in your car parked at the site to receive a copy of your results. Plan at least 30 minutes to be tested and get your result.
