Broome Giving Away Thousands of At-Home Rapid Covid Test Kits
Several thousand rapid Covid-19 testing kits are to be distributed at more than a dozen sites around Broome County.
Patrick Dewing, director of the county Office of Emergency Services, said almost 7,000 test kits are to be given away.
A drive-through testing site will be set up at Otsiningo Park in the town of Dickinson Wednesday from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.
Dewing said about 5,000 kits have been allocated for the Otsiningo drive-through event. There will be a limit of two boxes of tests - a total of four tests - per car. They'll be distributed on a first-come, first-serve basis.
For those not able to go to the park distribution event, test kits also will be available at the Broome County Office building in downtown Binghamton, as well as the following locations:
- Broome West Senior Center
- Northern Broome Senior Center
- Eastern Broome Senior Center
- Broome County Library
- Deposit Free Library
- Lisle Free Library
- George F. Johnson Memorial Library
- Nineveh Public Library
- Fenton Free Library
- Vestal Public Library
- Your Home Public Library
- Mary Wilcox Memorial Library
Kits will be available at the senior centers and libraries during regular operating hours while supplies last.

Covid-19 testing is available by appointment at the Broome County Health Department in Binghamton and at a state-run site at the former Davis College campus on Riverside Drive in Johnson City.
