Amid the continued spread of coronavirus in New York City, officials have announced the opening of three COVID-19 assessment and testing centers in the Bronx.
Visits are by appointment only and officials stressed only patients experiencing moderate or severe symptoms should seek testing.
“Those with mild illness, who are not above the age of 50 or have underlying health conditions, should continue to stay home, practice social distancing, and consult their health care provider if their symptoms do not subside in 3-4 days,” the city Department of Health and Hospitals said in a statement.
The Bronx testing locations are:
Lincoln, 234 East 149th St.
Jacobi, 1400 Pelham Parkway South
Gotham Health, Morrisania, 1225 Gerard Ave.
