Testing for East Hampton

I’m pleased to announce a new COVID-19 testing site will be opening this week in East Hampton. Working in cooperation with Supervisor Van Scoyoc, who reached out to me to coordinate with the East Hampton Healthcare Foundation (which will provide initial funding) and Southampton Hospital, Hudson River Health Care has been engaged to perform the diagnostic testing.

Diagnostic tests for COVID-19 will be available on Wednesdays and Fridays by appointment (call 845-553-8030) beginning on May 15. This test site will be located on Pantigo Place near the East Hampton Little League Fields adjacent to the Town offices and East Hampton Healthcare offices. Testing will be available to first responders, health care workers, and essential employees such as food service workers, delivery workers, and human service providers. The full list is available at

Testing is available for the general public who may have COVID-19 symptons or those who have been in contact with someone positive for COVID-19. I was happy to work with Supervisor Peter VanScoyoc in facilitating this project and am grateful that we’ll have the ability to access this additional testing right here in East Hampton. Expanding the scope of testing is a critical part of keeping our residents safe and an important component towards reopening our economy and returning to some semblance of normal.

The local availability of COVID-19 diagnostic testing will help us to stop the spread of the virus within our community and move us closer to a safe reopening of our economy,” said East Hampton Town Supervisor Peter Van Scoyoc. “Contact tracing, which Suffolk County is ramping up, will identify community members exposed to positive COVID-19 cases so that they may also quarantine and help stop the virus’s spread.” 

“I appreciate Deputy Mayor Borsack’s assistance, Hudson River Health Care’s willingness to get this site up and running for our community, and the East Hampton Healthcare Foundation who will be providing some of the initial funding,” Supervisor Van Scoyoc said.

The East Hampton Healthcare Foundation will provide the financial support needed initially, and will accept donations to support continued testing. Donations may be sent to:
