As part of the Governor’s initiative for antibody sampling of essential workers, food delivery and restaurant workers will be offered the opportunity to receive free COVID-19 antibody testing. Sampling will be available to these employees from Monday 6/1 through Saturday 6/6 at the 8 sites listed below.


This test will indicate whether an individual was previously infected with COVID-19 and now possesses antibodies to the virus. The sampling will be performed by the NYS Department of Health. Please note that testing is voluntary, and DOH will not provide any employer with an individual’s test results.


Starting Monday 6/1 through Saturday 6/6, food delivery and restaurant workers may go to any of the sites listed below as walk-ins for antibody sampling.  Hours of operation for all sites are 10:00am-5:30pm each day.  The testing process takes approximately 15 minutes.
