One Week Into Swift Rapid COVID-19 Testing on Main Street Shows Light Use, Good Overall Results

After the first 4-day week of rapid COVID-19 testing at the RIOC sponsored location at 524 Main Street, there’s little change overall in tests or results.

For the week ending on Saturday, the New York City Department of Health reports 463 tests among those of us with 10044 zip codes, consistent with previous weeks, and a positivity rate of 3.46%, far under the city average of 8.68%

Our last report, on January 4th, showed an infection rate of 3.57% against a city average of 9.31%.
