SARANAC LAKE — Adirondack Health has announced dates, times and locations for the next week of its free drive-thru coronavirus testing clinic.

Testing is open to everyone, symptomatic or asymptomatic, regardless of employment status or category. A doctor’s order is suggested but not required. Every COVID-19 test will entail a sinus swab, with the option to also have blood drawn to check for the presence of the COVID-19 antibody.

Locations

¯ Keene Valley: Tuesday, 11 a.m. to 3 p.m., Marcy Field, 12942 Route 73

¯ Lake Placid: Wednesday, 11 a.m. to 3 p.m., Northwood School, 92 Northwood Road

¯ Tupper Lake: Thursday, 11 a.m. to 3 p.m., L.P. Quinn Elementary School, 294 Hosley Ave.

¯ Long Lake: Friday, 11 a.m. to 3 p.m., Long Lake Central School, 20 School Road

Insurance

To schedule an appointment, contact your primary care provider or the COVID-19 clinic at 518-897-2462. There is no cost to the individual being tested, but Adirondack Health will collect each person’s health insurance information, if they have insurance, and bill insurance companies. Insurance companies, in turn, are prohibited by New York state from charging co-pays or deductibles for COVID-19 testing. Individuals without health insurance will still be tested free of charge.

Adirondack Health’s expanded testing efforts will continue for the foreseeable future, subject to the continued availability of COVID-19 test kits. For the most up-to-date information regarding Adirondack Health testing availability, visit adirondackhealth.org/covid-testing.
