A Mobile COVID-19 Testing Site is in Caribbean-Brooklyn. It is located in the Sears Parking Lot in Flatbush. The Site opened at 12:30pm on Saturday, April 11, a mere two days after Governor Andrew Cuomo made the decision. The site will be opened everyday until the pandemic eases.
A reason the site is in one of the major neighborhoods of Caribbean-Brooklyn and the immigrant community is to deflect criticisms of insufficient COVID-19 services in minority communities in the City of New York.
The Mobile COVID-19 center is available to everyone by appointment only. To make an appointment contact the NYS Department of Health at 888-364-3065.
Since the Sears Parking Lot is in the 42nd Assembly District, local residents may contact the District’s representatives. They are:

State Senator Kevin Parker – Dem.
