Cattaraugus County has moved the drive-thru COVID testing site that was formally located at the Allegany Firemen’s Grounds. The new site, beginning December 3, 2020, is located at 3799 [South] Nine Mile Rd in Allegany, NY. (Directions listed below.) This site is at the Intandem building (formerly the Rehab Center) just west Randy’s Up The River.
This is still a DRIVE-THRU site. Once you have been scheduled for your test date and time, proceed to the test site and follow the signs and arrows to drive up to the testing spot. Beginning today, all Cattaraugus County drive-thru testing will take place at that location, unless otherwise directed. Everyone should remain in their vehicle at the test site and take direction from staff as you move through the testing lane.
