New York state officials brought COVID-19 antibody testing to Flushing over the weekend, Congresswoman Grace Meng announced today.
The testing site conducted almost 200 random tests of local residents each day – 179 on Friday and 183 on Saturday. The tests were performed throughout the morning and afternoon.
Participants had their blood samples drawn from their fingers for the test.
“This antibody testing is an important tool in our fight against COVID-19,” Meng said. “It is critical to know how many New Yorkers have been infected with the virus in order to help with reopening our state.”
