COVID-19: NYC Quote of the Day 2020-05-15

Thursday, May 14, 2020, NYC Mayor de Blasio - More Testing Means More Locations

More testing means more locations. I'm going to announce officially the locations of those 12 sites. Opening, week of May 18th, in Manhattan, the Highbridge Rec Center in Washington Heights. In Brooklyn, 1223 Coney Island Avenue. Those two sites will bring our overall capacity up to 6,300 tests a day at Health and Hospitals. And then the following week, week of May 25th, two sites in the Bronx in Fordham Manor and Melrose. Three sites in Brooklyn, Sunset Park, Bay Ridge, and Canarsie. A site in Manhattan in East Harlem. A site in Queens in Woodside. Three sites in Staten Island, Princes Bay, Concord, and Port Richmond. That capacity will bring us up to 10,700 tests a day.

This is going to keep growing, the more capacity we have, the more labs we bring into the game, the more we'll keep building this program out. Anyone in those new categories I talked about, please take advantage of this testing opportunity. It's going to help you, your family, the people in your life, but it's going to help us as well as we fight back the coronavirus in this City.
