COVID PCR TESTING
Buffalo, New York
As the number of respiratory infections continues to rise in WNY, many of us and our families need quick turnaround COVID PCR’s tests in order to return to school/work. In addition to the PCR Testing in the office, the Erie Country DOH offers COVID-19 diagnostic tests that meet the NYSDOH standard for return to school or work, with results in 1-3 days.
If you are in need of a PCR test, please call 716-858-2929 to schedule an appointment with Erie County Department of Health.
NYSDOH also lists test sites on its web site: https://coronavirus.health.ny.gov/find-test-site-near-you
KSL Diagnostics also offers this service.
KSL Diagnostics is partnering with area pediatricians and the Erie County Department of Health to test symptomatic students and help them return to school quickly. Standard, accurate RT-PCR lab testing from KSL offers turnaround time of 8 hours or less. KSL staffs drive through collection sites, with results emailed to parents and physicians. These sites and a complete list of our affiliate collection sites can be found at www.ksldx.com. Sites and hours of operation are being expanded. Check our website for the most current information.
Diagnostic testing is covered for insured and uninsured clients per the CARES Act. Insurance information will be collected at the test site if the child is covered. A physician’s prescription is recommended to minimize issues with insurance reimbursement, but is not required. No appointment is necessary for testing.
