‘Get Tested Tuesday’ Effort Aims to Keep City Infection Rate Low

There are free COVID-19 tests all around the city, and all you have to do is get one.

Members of the Test + Trace corps set up in the Soundview section of the Bronx, Flushing, Queens; the North Shore of Staten Island and Sunset Park, Brooklyn to provide information about where to get a free COVID-19 test. The goal of this effort is to keep the positive rate of those tested, also known as the infection rate, at no more than one percent, to insure the virus is held at bay. Test and trace leaders said they’re also working with labs to push for faster result; New Yorkers say they’re waiting days or weeks to find out. The test and trace corp plans to hold Testing days of action like this in other neighborhoods across the five boroughs in upcoming weeks to keep urging people to get tested.
