Adirondack Health holds COVID-19 pop-up testing clinic in Tupper Lake today
TUPPER LAKE — Adirondack Health will conduct a pop-up testing clinic in Tupper Lake today from 1 to 2 p.m. at Tupper Lake Middle-High School, 25 Chaney Ave.
Pre-registration is required, with a limited number of appointment slots available. To pre-register, contact the Adirondack Health COVID-19 clinic at 518-897-2462. There is no direct cost to the individual being tested, but Adirondack Health will collect health insurance information 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 be tested free of charge.
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 nasopharyngeal (sinus) swab. Blood draws to check for antibodies are currently unavailable at mobile testing clinics.
