Blakeman: 160,000 COVID-19 Test Kits Distributed to Nassau Residents

Written by Chris Boyle  |  12. January 2022

This weekend 160,000 at-home tests were successfully distributed to tens of thousands Nassau County residents at Tobay Beach and Eisenhower park. County Executive Bruce Blakeman worked together with Nassau University Medical Center, the NCPD and other County agencies to secure additional test kits following the high demand seen last week. 
 
The average wait time to receive a package of tests was 15 minutes.
 
A vaccination pod was also held at Nassau Community college. Over 200 residents signed up to get either their booster shot, or first or second shot.
 
“Here in Nassau County, we are taking action to provide resources like free at-home test kits, and vaccinations to residents to help keep them safe.” Blakeman said. “Thank you to Town of Oyster Bay Supervisor Joseph Saladino, our first responders, county health department, and volunteers for making these events a huge success.”
