Southampton Village Mayor Jesse Warren, Dr. Peter Micholas, and other private citizens have teamed up to open a testing site in Southampton Village. The drive-thru testing site will be located at 330 Meeting House Lane at the Hudson River Health Care office. Testing begins Thursday, April 30, at 10 AM, and will take place on Tuesdays and Thursdays thereafter.
The testing involves Q-tip-like nasal swabs. Results could take two to five days. Hours for testing may increase or decrease, depending on demand and funding.
Organizers said expenses will be paid privately through the nonprofit organization Hamptons Health Society, Warren personally, and through fundraisers. More information on pricing and insurance will be forthcoming. Testing will be free for those who can’t afford the fee.
A toll-free number will be available soon, and those experiencing symptoms will be prioritized.
