To better serve the Bronx community, we are conducting two forms of COVID-19 testing at our main health center. The two types of tests are:
- Viral test – This is a nasal swab test that tells you if you have a current infection. Tests are given to people with active symptoms of COVID-19.
- Antibody test – This is a blood test that tells you if you had a previous infection. At this time, it is unclear if a positive antibody definitively offers immunity.
To ensure the safety of our staff and patients, our waiting areas are regularly deep cleaned, and seating is limited to ensure patients can maintain a safe distance from one another. Everyone present must wear protective masks to help contain the potential spread of COVID-19. If you do not have a mask, one will be provided to you when you arrive at VIP.
