A COVID-19 COMMUNITY TESTING SITE is scheduled to open Tuesday at SUNY Geneseo, part of a second round of COVID-19 testing sites opened on State University of New York campuses across the state. A site at SUNY Brockport is scheduled to open Thursday. Sites have already opened at the state University at Buffalo, Buffalo State College, and Genesee Community College’s Albion Campus Center, 456 West Ave., Albion. The sites are opening as record numbers of COVID tests have caused hours-long wait times to get a nasal swab test, backlogging results for several days. The Geneseo site will be located in Sturges Hall, 1 College Circle. Appointments may be made at this link, https://tinyurl.com/mrykeu4w. The Brockport site will be located in Mortimer Hall, Holly Street. Appoints may be made at https://tinyurl.com/32kvyfjt
