According to two trustworthy sources, COVID-19 testing arrives on Roosevelt Island, starting Monday, December 6th. But the Test and Trace van may be here for just one week, so far.

UPDATE: Rise and Shine: According to council member elect Julie Menin, the hours will be 8:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. in Good Shepherd Plaza.
COVID-19 Testing at Good Shepherd Plaza
In separate tweets, yesterday, both City Council Member-elect Julie Menin and State Assembly Member Rebecca Seawright said a Test and Trace mobile van will set up in Good Shepherd Plaza on Monday. Details are sketchy. We don’t know the hours of service yet, but it’s free and will stay for at least one week.
We are not sure what “come back as needed means,” as this all came together so quickly on Friday afternoon that it’s not even on Health & Hospital’s website yet. After Menin tweeted, Seawright noted the location and added “several weeks” in her tweet.
Who’s information is most accurate is unknown, but we will try clarifying as soon as possible.
In the meantime, COVID-19 testing comes to Roosevelt Island on Monday, and that’s good news.
