From Steuben County Public Health:
NORTH HORNELL, NY – The Steuben County Public Health Department is partnering with Alfred State College nursing students and the Hornell Fire Department to provide free COVID-19 rapid testing at the Station Church in North Hornell. Testing will be available Friday, December 18 from 10 am – 12 pm and 1 pm – 4 pm. The Station Church is located at 342 Seneca Road, in North Hornell.
“We are grateful for the opportunity to bring free community testing to the Hornell area,” said Public Health Director, Darlene Smith. “Over the last few weeks we have seen cases starting to increase in Hornell, and we are hopeful additional testing can identify outstanding positives in the area and isolate the cases from further exposures.”
Testing is free and open to Steuben County residents. Participants must pre-register in order to be tested at https://tinyurl.com/hornellrapid. Each individual in the vehicle or household who wants to get tested will need to register separately. Participants should show up at their designated appointment time to allow for safe traffic patterns.
Participants must wear a face covering and social distance onsite. Enter the building at your scheduled appointment time. Those under age 18 must be accompanied by a parent or guardian. If a printed copy of results is needed, notify the individual at the check in location. After being swabbed, participants are to wait in their vehicles for results. Results will be provided at the site within approximately 15 – 30 minutes.
