"We are not defenseless as we fight the winter surge: vaccines, boosters and testing can help us slow the spread and protect our loved ones," Governor Hochul said. "These new SUNY sites build on our ongoing efforts to make testing more available as part of our Winter Surge Plan, and will be part of more than 2,000 locations statewide where New Yorkers can easily get tested for COVID-19. We are utilizing every possible State resource to keep New Yorkers safe and protect our fragile health care system."
