Prefer your Dr. office or the hospital for testing but hey why not Jones beach?

It's got a bunch of areas closed already for ...cuomo.

Drive thru down at the beach, open area or walk into a germ infested hospital or doc's office? 

BEACH PLEASE. I m no fan of CUOMO, but they are doing a good job.

I don't understand how would we loose access to Field #9 if test center is set up on WE Field #2?

highly doubt test center comes to Field #2, as the usable space is limited with all constructions going down there.

My thoughts, too.

But someone mentioned that we may loose access to all fields.

I just don't see why and how that would happen.

Drive through. Not crazies running around.  No body get out of their car.  The best candidate would be the west end road circuit.  Think christmas light show, but for testing.

Some interesting bits I intercepted... cannot confirm validity

 

Internal email for staff in St George’s Hospital Virus Detection: The simplest way to distinguish Coronavirus from a Common Cold is that the COVID-19 infection does not cause a cold nose or cough with cold, but it does create a dry and rough cough.The virus is typically first installed in the throat causing inflammation and a feeling of dryness. This symptom can last between 3 and 4 days.The virus typically then travels through the moisture present in the airways, goes down to the trachea and installs in the lungs, causing pneumonia that lasts about 5 or 6 days.Pneumonia manifests with a high fever and difficulty breathing. The Common Cold is not accompanied, but there may be a choking sensation. In this case, the doctor should be called immediately.Experts suggest doing this simple verification every morning: Breathe in deeply and hold your breath for 10 seconds. If this can be done without coughing, without difficulty, this shows that there is no fibrosis in the lungs, indicating the absence of infection. It is recommended to do this control every morning to help detect infection.

 

Prevention:The virus hates heat and dies if it is exposed to temperatures greater than 80°F (27°C). Therefore hot drinks such as infusions, broths or simply hot water should be consumed abundantly during the day. These hot liquids kill the virus and are easy to ingest.Avoid drinking ice water or drinks with ice cubes. Ensure that your mouth and throat are always wet, never DRY. You should drink a sip of water at least every 15 minutes. WHY? Even when the virus enters water or other liquids through the mouth, it will get flushed through the oesophagus directly into the stomach where gastric acids destroy the virus. If there is not enough water, the virus can pass into the trachea and from there to the lungs, where it is very dangerous.For those who can, sunbathe. The Sun's UV rays kill the virus and the vitamin D is good for you. The Coronavirus has a large size (diameter of 400-500 nanometers) so face masks can stop it, no special face masks are needed in daily life.If an infected person sneezes near us, stay 10 feet (3.3 meters) away to allow the virus fall to the ground and prevent it from falling on you. When the virus is on hard surfaces, it survives about 12 hours, therefore when hard surfaces such as doors, appliances, railings, etc. are touched, hands should be washed thoroughly and/or disinfected with alcoholic gel The virus can live nested in clothes and tissues between 6 and 12 hours. Common detergents can kill it. Things that cannot be washed should be exposed to the Sun and the virus will die. The transmission of the virus usually occurs by direct infection, touching fabrics, tissues or materials on which the virus is present. Washing your hands is essential.The virus survives on our hands for only about 10 minutes. In that time many things can happen, rubbing the eyes, touching the nose or lips. This allows the virus to enter your throat. Therefore, for your good and the good of all, wash your hands very often and disinfect them.You can gargle with disinfectant solutions (i.e. Listerine or Hydrogen Peroxide) that eliminate or minimize the amount of virus that can enter the throat. Doing so removes the virus before it goes down to the trachea and then to the lungs. Disinfect things touched often: cellphone, keyboard, mouse, car steering wheel, door handles, etc.

Anyone remember the lines for the Xmas show lights?  One time I went for herring, the line backed up the bay pkwy all the way past F10.  All because they didn't hire enough kids to run the show quickly.  I can only imagine what this will be like if it gets going in earnest...

Judging from the current New Rochelle testing site, it's by appointment only. So you can't just drive up.   That's the pilot site. More will be opened somewhere in the city. Somewhere, open, away from the crowd, like Floyd bennet...

Tappan Cuomo bridge? 

Please Coumo, stand of the middle of the bridge and blow your self up.

That would be huge help to NY State and provide new structure for stripers.

Talking about killing two flies with one shut.
