Swabbing and antibody testing is becoming increasingly available in the WNY region. If you are experiencing symptoms, contact your primary care provider and they will determine if testing is right for you. If the counties receive an increase in swabbing supplies and the protocol for testing is changed, we will notify the public. The Health Departments are not providing public swabbing due to lack of supplies. For more information on testing click here. There is free antibody testing available for food delivery and restaurant workers Monday, June 1st – Thursday, June 4th. Testing is walk-in testing from 10:00 a.m. – 5:30 p.m. and facemasks are required at each of the testing locations. The closest testing location is Erie Community College North Campus (see included attachment.) It takes a while for antibodies to build up, so it is best to wait until at least 21 days have passed since you had a positive viral test or the symptoms of COVID-19 started. If you were already tested and the results were negative, or you have never been tested and you have been exposed to the virus at work or at home, you can also be tested using the dried-blood spot test.
