Governor Kathy Hochul on Friday nine testing sites will open on SUNY and community college campuses across New York State, including close by to Orleans County at Niagara County Community College and Monroe Community College.

“Through our winter surge plan we are building on our ongoing efforts to make testing more widely available, and that includes utilizing our SUNY campus facilities that are equipped to distribute more tests to New Yorkers,” Hochul said. “Expanded access to testing will ensure those who are positive with the virus can isolate to limit spread and keep others in their communities well. Get tested and stay home if you are sick – we are not powerless.”

The site at NCCC opens on Jan. 18 and will be open from 8:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. from Monday through Friday at Building G, 3111 Saunders Settlement Road in Sanborn.
