A Covid-19 test site will open Friday at Stony Brook University to help meet increased demand amid the ongoing winter surge of the coronavirus pandemic. 

The site will open and provide appointment-based and walk-in Covid-19 testing Monday through Friday, 8:30 a.m. to 4 p.m., with a capacity for approximately 225 appointments per day and up to 50 walk-ins. Appointments can be scheduled here.

“As we continue to combat the winter surge it is essential that we provide more access to testing for New Yorkers to help limit the spread of this virus,” Gov. Kathy Hochul said. “While testing is critically important, we must ensure we continue to focus on all the tools available to us: get vaccinated, get boosted, and wear a mask.”

The location is part of test sites being opened at select SUNY campuses across New York State. The next such site to open on Long Island is slated for Farmingdale State College, with details expected in the coming days.
