… Newly-elected Roosevelt Island/Upper
East Side NYC Council Member-elect Julie Menin and NY State Assembly Member Rebecca Seawright answered the pleas from residents and immediately worked to bring a NYC Health & Hospitals Test And Trace Mobile Covid Test Unit …
The Mobil Covid Test Unit was on Roosevelt Island
from December 6 – 12, but not today.
This morning I asked Council Member Elect Julie Menin:
Mobile Covid Testing van is gone today. Do you know if it will be back?
Any info on how many tests they did?
Ms Menin replied:
City told me that it will be back next week 12/20-12/24 and will be test and vaccination.
About a 1000 tests for the whole week were done (combined rapid & PCR) but that doesn’t mean 1000 unique individuals as many people opt to have both rapid and PCR together.
Testing is key to helping Roosevelt Islanders have a safe, happy and healthy holiday season! Pleased to help secure a mobile testing unit on RI through Dec 31. pic.twitter.com/Ln1KZlZvnJ
