[ARCHIVED] Rapid Covid Tests to be distributed Thursday -Theodore Young Community Center

starting at 10 AM
Those waiting on line must stay in vehicles and provide a Photo ID showing that you reside in unincorporated Greenburgh
We only have 720 kits (population of unincorporated is over 40,000)

COVID RAPID RESPONSE TEST KITS TO BE DISTRIBUTED AT THEODORE YOUNG COMMUNITY CENTER THIS THURSDAY BEGINNING AT 10 AM UNTIL SUPPLIES RUN OUT 

Unincorporated Greenburgh has a limited batch of Covid-19 Rapid Response Test Kits which we will be distributing ONE PER HOUSEHOLD.  There are over 40,000 residents of the town and we received only  720 test kits - obviously not enough for everyone.


There will be will a general distribution by the Town’s Department of Community Resources in the Theodore D. Young Community Center parking lot, 32 Manhattan Ave, on Thursday, December 30, starting at 10 a.m.  Line up without blocking driveways along Manhattan Ave to turn right into the Center parking lot when it is your turn.  Kits will be distributed on a first-come basis.


 Since many seeking these kits may be Covid-19 positive, it is important you stay in your vehicle and stay masked.  The required Photo ID (which must show home address) of vehicle occupant will be checked to verify unincorporated Greenburgh residency at an address/apt that hasn’t already received a kit.  Again, these are given out only one per household as supplies we received from the county are limited. The general distribution will continue until kits are gone that day.  In other communities around Westchester supplies ran out within an hour.  Many people who waited on line did not receive the tests. 


The federal, state and county governments are working with local governments around the nation to increase the supply of free Covid rapid tests that will be distributed to residents.  We will hold other distribution events at different sections of town when more kits become available.  We understand that many residents are very stressed out -unable to get rapid tests and we  will continue to do the best we can to keep you healthy and safe.  


The most important action step you could take to protect yourself, your family and friends is to get vaccinated and boosted.
