Syracuse, N.Y. -- The state will open 35 new rapid Covid-19 testing sites by mid-April, a move meant to continue to track the coronavirus as New York begins allowing larger gatherings at weddings, concerts, sporting events and other venues.

That includes one that will open at Quest Diagnostics, Shop City Plaza, 396 Grant Blvd., within the next two weeks, according to Gov. Andrew Cuomos office.

This new effort adds to 35 existing test centers, most of which are in New York City.

These 70 test centers will also feed the test results into the states Excelsior Pass program. That is an electronic way for people to show their vaccination and testing history as required to enter or attend some events.

These tests are not free. The testing providers can charge no more than $30, according to a news release from Cuomo. The providers must also release the results within 30 minutes and offer a way for people to schedule appointments.

The testing will be run byBioReference Laboratories,Clarity MedHealth, Quest Diagnostics and Rapid Reliable Testing, according to Cuomos office.
