POMONOK- Senator Toby Ann Stavisky (D- 16th Senate District) and Assemblyman Daniel Rosenthal (D- 27th Assembly District) distributed free COVID-19 testing kits at the Pomonok Community Center. During the two hour event the legislators handed out hundreds of kits, which were provided to them by the Governor’s office. The kits consisted of an N95 mask, COVID-19 tests and hand sanitizer.

“New York State has been relentless in its efforts to vaccinate our residents and emerge from the COVID-19 pandemic,” says Senator Toby Ann Stavisky. “However, both vaccinated and unvaccinated individuals can still catch and spread the virus. These tests, combined with wearing the N95 mask, will help prevent the spread of the virus and keep our community safe. Thank you to Assemblymember Rosenthal and the Pomonok Community Center for helping make this event a success.”

"As we move closer towards the end of the COVID pandemic, it is important to ensure the personal protection needs of each individual," says Assemblymember Daniel Rosenthal. "My office will continue to supply PPE and tests as long as constituents need them. I would like to thank Senator Stavisky and Queens Community House for collaborating on this event."
