The drive-through site is located at 180 Genesee Street and vehicles should enter on Genesee Street.
Both sites are open to the public and no appointments are necessary.
Those without insurance must pay $125 for the test. For those with insurance be advised that most insurance providers cover the test but residents may want to check with their providers first.
The tests are being offered through Precision Clinical Laboratories. The company says it can provide results within 24 hours.
Precision Clinical Laboratories (PCL) will collect and process the PCR COVID-19 test. Testing samples are collected through a self-administered nasal swab. Through a written release the Oneida County Executive’s Office says that “PCL is permitted through the New York State Department of Health and certified in meeting all requirements to perform high-complexity COVID testing.”
