There’s a new spot in the neighborhood to get a Covid test where you’re likely to get results quickly — in fact, the city says it can get you answers within 24 hours.
Some private testing sites have been taking several days — or even weeks — to return results.
The new free testing spot is at 160 West 100th Street, a NYC Dept. of Health building that’s across the street from the 24th precinct. These are PCR tests that look for the virus’ genetic material (the most common type of test), according to Councilmember Mark Levine.
