The Steuben County Public Health Department is partnering with Corning Community College to provide free COVID-19 rapid testing at the Corning Community College Health Education Center (HEC). Testing will be available December 7 through December 11 with additional dates to follow. The HEC is located at 132 Denison Parkway East, Corning. Participants should park in the building’s lot off Chemung Street.
“We are thrilled to be partnering with Corning Community College and its nursing students to be able to provide more community testing,” said Public Health Director, Darlene Smith. “Identifying positives in the community is essential to slowing the spread of COVID-19. Additional testing will also give a better idea of the infection rate in the county and will hopefully drive our percentage of positives down to keep our community functioning safely outside a micro-cluster zone.”
The testing will be available:
- Monday, December 7 from 11 am – 12 pm, 1 pm – 4 pm
- Tuesday – Thursday, December 8 – 10 from 9 am – 12 pm, 1 pm – 4 pm
- Friday, December 11 from 9 am – 12 pm
Testing is free and open to Steuben County residents. Participants must pre-register in order to be tested at https://tinyurl.com/cccrapid. Scroll down to register for the specific day desired. Each individual in the vehicle or household who wants to get tested will need to register separately. Participants should show up at their designated appointment time to allow for safe traffic patterns.
Participants must park in the HEC’s parking lot. Wear a face covering and social distance onsite. Enter the building at your scheduled appointment time. Those under age 18 must be accompanied by a parent or guardian. If a printed copy of results is needed, notify the individual at the check in location. After being swabbed, participants are to wait in their vehicles for results. Results will be provided at the site within approximately 15 – 30 minutes.
“Steuben County Public Health has been an indispensable partner with Corning Community College during the course of the pandemic and has been instrumental in keeping our students and staff safe,” said Corning Community College President, William Mullaney. “We are happy to continue that partnership by offering COVID testing for the community at the college’s Health Education Center this month, which is also providing our students an opportunity to assist in this effort.”
