A new rapid COVID-19 testing site has opened at the Kew Gardens Hills library branch.

The library has been temporarily converted to a testing site and COVID resource center to help residents within the Central Queens red zone get through the crisis.

The facility offers free tests to patients everyday from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. starting Thursday through Sunday, Nov. 1 via a partnership with the city’s Test & Trace Corps.

The branch had previously reopened for to-go library service, but closed on Oct. 5 in response to concerns of COVID-19 spread in the area.

The Kew Gardens Hills library, located at 72-33 Vleigh Pl., is within the state-mandated red zone.
