Free COVID rapid testing for Chemung County residents

Coronavirus GFX 2

CHEMUNG COUNTY (WBNG) -- Chemung County is offering free rapid testing for the coronavirus to residents this upcoming week.

Testing will be held Tuesday, October 20th through Saturday, October 24th at Washington Elementary School, or the Elmira School District Administration Building, in Elmira.

Testing will be administered daily from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Officials say Chemung County residents must pre-register, wear a mask, and present a photo ID to be tested.

Members from the same household must register separately.

Officials ask those being tested to report to the site only at the time of their scheduled test to help operate the clinic efficiently.

This offered testing is not a drive-up site. Participants will be asked to wear a mask at all times and wait in their car with windows rolled up until instructed to enter the building.

Officials ask that participants park in the lot on Lincoln Street. Health Department staff will be guiding cars into spaces.
