A Covid-19 test site will open Wednesday at Farmingdale State College to help meet increased demand during an ongoing winter surge in cases.

The state-run 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.

“We are not defenseless as we fight the winter surge: vaccines, boosters and testing can help us slow the spread and protect our loved ones,” Gov. Kathy Hochul said. “These new SUNY sites build on our ongoing efforts to make testing more available as part of our Winter Surge Plan, and will be part of more than 2,000 locations statewide where New Yorkers can easily get tested for Covid-19. We are utilizing every possible State resource to keep New Yorkers safe and protect our fragile health care system.” 

The Farmingdale location, at Nold Hall on 2350 Broadhollow Rd., is one of 10 testing sites opening at SUNY campuses across the state this week. They add to another 10 that opened last week, including one at Stony Brook University.
