    New York state is opening up 11 rapid coronavirus testing sites in the Big Apple as a way to ramp up the reopening of the economy, Gov. Andrew Cuomo said Friday. “I believe reopening is going to be accelerated by testing and we’ve been moving down that path,” Cuomo said during a virtual Albany press briefing. “If a person is tested and is negative then you can reopen.” Testing, Cuomo explained, “is the key to accelerating the reopening of the economy.” Cuomo said that “as we speak” the state was opening those 11 rapid testing sites in the city. Eight of those sites are based in Manhattan, while the three other sites are based at CVS pharmacies each in Brooklyn, Queens and the Bronx. The FDA-approved COVID-19 antigen tests administered at those sites will cost no more than $30 for results in 30 minutes or less, Cuomo said. “It gives...

    Lines for COVID-19 tests in Manhattan stretched for more than six hours Monday, as New Yorkers rushed to get checked ahead of Thanksgiving. Outside a CityMD clinic on East 86th Street in the Upper East Side, the line stretched for three blocks, down First Avenue and onto East 85th Street, by early afternoon. CORONAVIRUS: WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW One local couple said they’d been waiting for six hours, part of it in the rain, since 6:45 am — and still had another hour to go. “We’ve been taking turns going home to put more layers on and use the bathroom,” said John, 34, a tech worker waiting with his girlfriend. “We’re getting the rapid results test,” he said. “We have to, we’re going to her parents house in New Jersey for Thanksgiving. Her mom is 65 and her dad is 63.” VideoOthers weren’t so prepared for the long, chilly wait. “I...
    United Airlines is making it easier to go abroad by launching the world’s first “COVID-free flights” this week — opening up the New York/London corridor by using rapid testing. The company announced the move on Twitter this week noting: “We’re launching the world’s first free transatlantic COVID-19 testing program. “Offered 11/16 — 12/11 on select flights from New York/Newark — London, this pilot program guarantees all customers over 2 and crew on board test negative before departure.” The first plane took off on November 17, landing in Heathrow and all crew members and passengers were tested for the coronavirus before before flying. Only prospective passengers who test negative will be permitted to fly. “We believe the ability to provide fast, same-day COVID-19 testing will play a vital role in safely reopening travel around the world and navigating quarantines and travel restrictions, particularly to key international destinations like London,” Toby Enqvist,...
    A New York City restaurant is launching a “pilot testing program,” which will require guests to undergo a health screening and $50 rapid coronavirus test before entering and dining. City Winery recently announced the pilot program, which will take place on Tuesdays and Wednesdays. According to an announcement of the program, each diner will undergo a “wellness check” and pay $50 for “a shallow nasal swab by a certified practitioner.” The guests will then be required to wait for the results of their rapid test and will be permitted to enter upon receiving a negative test result. The establishment announced: For the remainder of 2020, we will REQUIRE that a rapid Covid-19 test be taken by all patrons before entering our restaurant on Tuesday and Wednesday evenings. The cost of the test is $50 per person – 100% of that fee goes directly to the testing company – and will be administered by a certified...
    NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — Major developments are in the works for rapid COVID testing, which experts say is crucial to reopening the economy safely. New tests promise to get results back within hours or even seconds, CBS2’s Dr. Max Gomez reports. We’ve said it before — tests that take days or weeks to give a result are useless. Too much spread or infection could happen in the interim. But companies ranging from Big Pharma to foreign start-ups have made tremendous strides in developing new tests that are simple and fast enough to possibly be used at restaurants, concerts, sporting events and even airports.

    A New York fertility doctor has developed a rapid, noninvasive coronavirus test that can deliver accurate results in 30 minutes or less, according to a preliminary study. The test, developed by Dr. Zev Williams, a reproductive endocrinologist who runs the Columbia University Fertility Center, uses a person’s saliva to screen for COVID-19. A small sample of saliva is placed into a tube containing enzymes and a compound that causes a chemical reaction before the tube is then warmed up with a heat block. The liquid in the tube turns yellow when it’s positive for the virus or red when it’s negative. “We wanted to design a single step test where all the work was being done by enzymes and chemicals rather than cartridges and components,” Williams said, adding that enzymes and chemicals are easy to scale and distribute. The one-step, rapid test was able to detect as few as...
