[ARCHIVED] COVID-19 Test Kit Distribution in Hampton Bays & Westhampton

Color-Seal-250x250

In order to continue to lower the infection of COVID-19, Councilman Martel and Southampton Town Department of Public Safety and Emergency Management will be dispersing at home test kits in Hampton Bays. The Hampton Bays pop up site will be located at the King Kullen Shopping Center and it will take place on Thursday, March 3rd, from 2pm-5pm in front of the shopping center.

The test kits were provided through a collaboration with Suffolk County Executive Steve Bellone’s Office and will be distributed throughout the Town of Southampton. The tests that will be distributed are rapid test kits with each kit containing two (2) tests. The tests are conducted using nasal swabs and a procedure that is similar to what many people have experienced over the last few years when getting tested at different sites. There are instructions and a mobile application to guide users through the process. The results should be available within 10 minutes.

The Town of Southampton is working to continue to disperse tests in order for people to be aware if they have contracted COVID-19 so they can stay home, stop the spread of the illness and keep everyone safe. “It is imperative to have tests in our households so we can keep seeing the numbers decrease and get back to doing all the activities we have missed” said Councilman Rick Martel. “I want to thank Suffolk County Executive Steve Bellone for this collaboration, which has allowed us to continue to provide resources that stop the spread of COVID-19”.

Those in need can obtain up to two kits per household on a first come, first served basis. The King Kullen Shopping Center is located at 52 E Montauk Hwy, Hampton Bays,  Thursday, March 3rd, 2pm-5pm and The Westhampton Beach Fire Department is located at 92 Sunset Ave, Westhampton Beach, Friday, March 4th 2pm-5pm
