Thursday, April 23, 2020

The Daily Gazette's Pete DeMola reports that testing will be expanded in Schenectady as early as next week as the county works with Ellis Medicine and other partners to fine tune a rollout.

“We’re very close to rolling out multiple test locations in Schenectady," County Manager Rory Fluman told The Gazette. “We’re ready to go with test sites."

Ellis Medicine resumed limited testing on Thursday at our McClellan Street Health Center as part of a soft launch ahead of the wider rollout. 

"With new testing materials coming in on a regular basis, we're working with the county to make it happen," Ellis spokesman Philip Schwartz told The Gazette.

Testing will resume Friday between 9 a.m. and 1 p.m. and between 2 p.m. and 5 p.m., with the final walk-in accepted at 4:30 p.m.
