Rep. Tom Reed and lab join forces to ramp up COVID-19 testing

05.08.20 | Bob Price

Congressman Tom Reed is teaming-up with Quest Diagnostics to meet the coronavirus testing requirement established by the governor in order for regions of the state to re-open.

Quest Diagnostics is sending out enough COVID-19 test kits to meet the demands of 3 million people.

Dr. Martin Stallone, CEO of Cayuga Medical Health, insists this lends itself toward a reopening of New York state.

The research facility will be ready to ship out the test kits on Monday, May 18th.

Governor Cuomo hopes to start slowly reopening New York next Friday, May 15th.
