Kaleida Health announced Wednesday that Covid-19 testing at the Leroy R. Coles Jr. Branch Library, 1187 E. Delavan Ave., will expand to eight hours a day, three days a week.
The site will be open from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday, Wednesday and Friday. When it opened last week, it was open only four hours a day.
Tests are available only by appointment, and Kaleida said it prefers test subjects to have a prescription from a primary care physician, if possible. Appointments can be made by calling 859-3222, where a worker will ask questions about a caller's symptoms.
The test site is located in ZIP code 14215 on Buffalo's East Side, which has the highest number of confirmed Covid-19 cases in Erie County.
