MAYVILLE – Additional COVID-19 rapid testing will take place in Chautauqua County next week.

The Chautauqua County Health Department says the testing is free and available for Chautauqua County residents.








Officials encourage anyone who has been exposed to the virus or, is showing symptoms, to schedule an appointment.

They say those who have tested positive for COVID-19 in the past 90 days should not be re-tested because they could still test positive.

The clinics will take place in both Jamestown and Dunkirk as follows:















Murphy Training Center, 665 Brigham Rd.

Tuesday, December 22, 9 a.m. to 2 p.m.

Tuesday, December 29, 9 a.m. to 2 p.m.
