(WSYR-TV) — 13 new state testing sites opened Wednesday to help address the recent surge of COVID-19 cases in New York, partly because of the new omicron variant, Governor Kathy Hochul’s office announced. 

The sites are open Wednesday, December 29, 2021, and will close by 4 p.m. New Year’s Eve and remain closed the following day. 

“As we get through this winter surge, we must remember we are not defenseless in our fight against the virus, and we need to use the tools at our disposal,” Governor Hochul said. “These new sites expand testing access in regions across the state and will be critical assets in our efforts to protect vulnerable New Yorkers. Remember to stay home if you’re sick, wear your mask, and if you haven’t yet, get your vaccine or booster shot as soon as possible.”
