COVID-19 Testing

NYS Department of Health COVID-19 Testing Protocol:

  • New York State has aggressively expanded COVID-19 diagnostic testing capacity. Beginning July 1sttesting is available to all New Yorkers statewide.
  • If you wish to be tested, even if you have previously been unable to receive an order for a test, you should reach out to your medical provider or call the Recovery Service Center at (845) 443-8888.
  • If you are experiencing COVID-19 symptoms, such as dry cough, fever, shortness of breath or loss of taste/smell, please call the testing site in advance to arrange for safe access to the site.
  • COVID-19 diagnostic testing is covered by most health insurance at either zero patient cost or your standard co-pay. Please check with your insurance provider before being tested to understand what cost, if any, you may be required to cover. Several testing sites offer no-cost testing for people without insurance. If the cost of testing is preventing you from being tested, please call the Recovery Service Center to see if an agent can help: 845-443-8888.
  • The most reliable way is to get tested for free is at a state-run test site, which is available locally at two state-run ​mobile test sites: Anthony Wayne Recreational Area in Harriman State Park, for appointments and hours call (888) 364-3065; and Albany SUNY Drive Through Location at 1400 Washington Avenue in Albany, complete online assessment and then call (888) 364-3065 to schedule.
