NOWHERE. If you think you have Corona, stay home. They will only test if you're very, very very sick.

No need for testing. Just assume you have it. Stay home. Refuah shleimah!

Based on symptoms I know I have it. Doesn't help though. I must have a confirmed test for something very important and time sensitive.

If you are a health care worker or getting married this coming week, tell your doctor. Otherwise, why do you think that you should be tested?

So then you'll have to convince a medical professional that you do need it and they will tell you where to go!

Working in a hospital is a medical concern. Being in close physical contact is a medical concern.

Even if you are immunocompromised or diabetic, you don't automatically need to be tested. You just need to stay home and take care of yourself.

If, chas veshalom, you are having trouble breathing, call an ambulance.

I wish you good health.

I heard that they had set up testing off exit 17 on the palisades. I know its far from Brooklyn but supposedly there is very little wait and no appointment needed. But I would double check.

You can beg. Someone I know has a child very sick in hospital and they begged and pleaded and were turned away 3 times. Had fever over 101. But in the end they tested him.
