If you’ve never gotten a coronavirus assessment, or if you get them frequently and are looking for an all-in-one explanation of the procedure, we have compiled a list below to streamline your understanding of what the experience will look like.
- Per New York State guidelines, the first thing you’ll want to do is take a pre-screening assessment about your symptoms and recent travel history. If you’d like to get more information from a specific testing site, you can also check out this link to find the closest site near you.
- You will receive a call or e-mail that schedules an appointment depending on if you have mild symptoms or the severity of your symptoms, if you’re a mandatory employee, among other criteria. You do have the option of calling and saying you’re in the system and would like to make an appointment.
- When you call and request an appointment, make sure to get the appointment number from the testing site because the texting system doesn’t always send your number.
- When you arrive at the designated time, you should write in big letters on a sheet of paper: your name, phone number, appt number, and tape your driver’s license to it. This will go on your dashboard so their staff can see it easily.
- As the health care staff perform the test, you’ll be asked to pull your mask away from your nose, close your eyes, concentrate on breathing and breath through your mouth.
As of the publishing of this article, the statewide positivity rate is 5.85% and expected to increase in the following weeks.
