More Covid-19 testing on the way for 14215

A church on Buffalo's East Side will offer walk-up and drive-thru Covid-19 diagnostic testing for residents in the 14215 ZIP code, one of the hardest-hit zones in Buffalo.

The testing site will be open from 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Monday and May 15 at the Greater Faith Bible Tabernacle Church at 391 Edison Ave.

The church partnered with Quest Diagnostics, Community Health Center and Common Council Member Rasheed N.C. Wyatt.

"The 14215 ZIP code has one of the highest rates of Covid-19 confirmed cases," Wyatt said. "It is crucial that we provide the community the resources to be able to get tested."

As of Tuesday, there were 322 confirmed virus cases in the 14215 ZIP code, more than twice as many as in any other Buffalo zone.

Residents are asked to make an appointment by calling the Community Health Center at 986-9199.

Results will be available in three to five days, Wyatt said.

The Rite Aid pharmacy located at 2474 Bailey Ave. ā€“ also in the 14215 ZIP code ā€“ is scheduled to open next week.
