Some supermarkets in New York City have been conducting antibody tests for COVID-19. Could we potentially see this practice hit the Hudson Valley soon?

There's been a lot of talk about when the pause should end and what the process to getting people back to work should look like. These details continue to unfold but one message that's been clear and repeated from the start was that we shouldn't send New York residents back to work without testing them to see if they presently have or ever have been positive for COVID-19.

Many New Yorkers are rallying together to get the antibody test done to see if they can donate their plasma to help fight the coronavirus.
