List of places you can get tested for COVID in the Hudson Valley


Below is a list of COVID-19 Testing Sites in four counties in the mid-Hudson Valley including Dutchess, Orange, Ulster and Sullivan Counties plus a link to the NYS Department of Health information section on Covid-19 testing.

There are several different types of tests available.

Diagnostic Testing

Currently, there are two types of diagnostic tests which detect the virus – molecular tests, such as RT-PCR tests, that detect the virus’s genetic material, and antigen tests that detect specific proteins on the surface of the virus. To decide which test is right for you, read more about the different kinds of tests from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration.

Antibody Testing

Some sites are now offering COVID-19 antibody testing for those who have had a positive test result or think they may have had COVID-19 and recovered.

PLEASE NOTE: Antibodies can take several days or weeks to develop after you have an infection and may stay in your blood for several weeks or more after recovery. Because of this, antibody tests should not be used to diagnose an active coronavirus infection. At this time researchers do not know if the presence of antibodies means that you are immune to the coronavirus in the future. Read more from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration.
