DANSVILLE — The Livingston County Department of Health (LCDOH), in partnership with Noyes Health, announced Tuesday that curbside testing for COVID-19 is available at two sites in Dansville and Geneseo.


Curbside testing allows individuals to stay in their vehicles while getting tested and is meant to help slow the spread of COVID-19.


If you have COVID-19 symptoms – fever, cough, or trouble breathing – you will need to first call your primary care physician to get a requisition. If you do not have a healthcare provider, call LCDOH at 585-243-7270 to see if you meet the COVID-19 testing criteria.


The requisition should be faxed to 585-335-4282 for the Dansville site and 585-991-6020 for the Geneseo site. You will then need to call Noyes Memorial Hospital at 585-335-6001 to set up an appointment for curbside testing at one of its two locations:


Dansville


111 Clara Barton Street


Dansville, NY 14437


Geneseo


50 East South Street


Geneseo, NY 14454


Appointments will be available from 12 p.m. until 2 p.m. Monday through Friday in Dansville and seven days a week in Geneseo.


For more information on or assistance with the coordination of curbside testing, call LCDOH at 585-243-7270.


Also on Tuesday, LCDOH reported two new positive cases of COVID-19 in Livingston County, which brings the total number of positive cases to 37.


According to Jennifer Rodriguez, Livingston County Public Health Director, the individuals and any associated household members are now in the LCDOH quarantine process. They are:

· A man in his 50s who resides in Avon.
