Statement from Legislature Chairman Anthony Jasenski Regarding NYS DOH Random Antibody Testing

Schenectady County COVID-19 Update

“Schenectady County was notified about random antibody testing being conducted at the Eastern Parkway Price Chopper site today by the New York State Department of Health after it had begun. Random testing presents a valuable opportunity to gauge virus spread in a given community, especially in areas of concern. As we seek to determine a prudent path forward from the social constraints of this pandemic, we appreciate any and all testing opportunities made available to us. However, the continued lack of test kit availability in Schenectady County, a nation-wide problem, hampers our ability to take care of our residents, especially the most vulnerable among us. Available widespread use of testing, random and otherwise, is crucial to identifying the steps necessary for us to move forward.”
