On May 27th we will conduct 50 COVID-19 tests. CCDOH staff will call or email residents who’d like to be tested and will provide them with their appointment time and pin number. Pin number and a form of identification should be brought with them to the testing site. Residents being tested are asked to wear their face masks to the testing site and adhere to all social distancing protocols of remaining 6 ft from all other residents being tested.  

After leaving the test site, residents should go directly home for mandatory quarantine until results are shared with them. Those who are tested should plan to self-quarantine for up to 14 days and will receive self-quarantine guidelines at the collection site. It may take a few days to receive the test results. Everyone who gets tested at the site will receive their results once they are processed by Wadsworth Laboratory in Albany.

Law enforcement will be on-site along EMS services. 

MAY 27TH & JUNE 2ND: The testing site will be located at John L. Edwards 360 State St, Hudson, NY 12534. The site will open 10 AM to 12 PM.
