NYS offers free antibody testing for food delivery and restaurant workers

Updated on June 4, 2020 4:30 PM

The New York State Department of Health has extended free COVID-19 antibody testing for food delivery and restaurant workers through Saturday, June 6.

Antibody tests may determine whether you have ever been exposed to COVID-19, but the accuracy and the significance of antibody tests is still uncertain. The medical community has called into question whether the presence of antibodies provides protection and immunity to the Coronavirus.

If you work in New York State and in food and beverage, and would like to be tested, the following testing sites are open from 10:00am-5:30pm daily until Saturday, June 6 (with the exception of John Jay College, Lehman College, and New York Institute of Technology testing sites, which will close at 5 PM). No appointment is needed and it is expected that the test will take about 15 minutes. Face masks are required.
