Expanded Testing Is A Win For NY23
When it comes to safely handling the Coronavirus and getting the state into a position to reopen, testing is a key component. This week, we worked together with Quest Diagnostics, regional officials and local health care providers to dramatically boost testing capacity and the availability of kits in our region. With this expanded testing capacity, we have met a major benchmark set by the Governor to reopen our region.
Cooperation, coordination and communication are vital in this situation – and we recognize and applaud Quest Diagnostics for stepping up to work with us over the past few weeks to make this expanded testing capacity a reality. With this new capacity in place, there is no reason why our region cannot be opened on May 15th, 2020.
We will continue to fight for the resources our region and state need during this crisis. For more information on the Quest Diagnostics development, please visit: https://www.weny.com/story/42105402/congressman-tom-reed-and-quest-diagnostics-team-up-to-deliver-additional-virus-test-kits
