To address the severe lack of access to COVID-19 testing, Senator Dan Stec (R,C-Queensbury) and his district staff delivered more than 1,000 test kits to locations across the entire 45th Senate District. Providing these tests to local organizations will help ailing residents receive the medical care they need and assist communities in combating the spread of the virus. 

“While much of the discourse around coronavirus has become hyper-political, it’s a fact that many people who are in need of a COVID test can’t get access to one,” said Stec. “This lack of access is simply unacceptable. 

“I was pleased my staff and I could partner with local organizations to address this crisis,” he added. “By delivering these tests, I’m optimistic that we can protect vulnerable populations and help our communities stay healthy during this challenging time.”
