The Public Health Departments of Ontario, Seneca, and Yates Counties announce free COVID-19 testing for the public beginning next week. Each county has organized asymptomatic testing opportunities throughout the region. In addition, the counties have partnered with Finger Lakes Community Health (FLCH) to add additional asymptomatic testing opportunities in more locations and the Victor/Farmington Ambulance will add a site in Ontario County.
“Testing availability for asymptomatic people has been challenging for our communities and we are pleased to partner with Finger Lakes Community Health to offer expanded testing opportunities at their existing sites in Geneva (Ontario), Ovid (Seneca) and Penn Yan (Yates) and the Victor/Farmington Ambulance Corp,” said Mary Beer, Public Health Director of Ontario County.
On Tuesdays, Ontario County will conduct testing for any asymptomatic individual at the County Transportation Center, 2930 County Road 48 in Hopewell from 2pm – 5pm and the Victor/Farmington Ambulance Corp will have a site on Wednesdays from 9am – 11am at their facility, 1321 East Victor Road, Victor. On Thursdays, FLCH will offer rapid testing from Public Health to anyone at their Geneva location and also in Seneca and Yates Counties. Test results from all locations will be communicated within 24 hours.
Only individuals who have no signs of illness can participate at these testing sites. If you are experiencing symptoms of any illness and want to be tested you should go to your physician or to an Urgent Care location.
