Assemblyman Charles D. Fall Yet Again Pushes Forward on Pandemic Safety Measures for the North Shore of Staten Island

Assemblyman Charles D. Fall (D-Richmond) will be providing approximately 1,500 tests to communities throughout the North Shore of Staten Island starting on Thursday, January 6th.

Before the holidays, Assemblyman Fall distributed hundreds of self-test kits to constituents on the North Shore. Here is this week testing itinerary:

  • On January 6th starting at 3:00PM, he will be distributing self-test kits at Jersey Street and Crescent Avenue first come, first served.
  • On January 7th, he will be distributing self-test kits at 3:00 PM at Park Hill Avenue and Palma Drive first come, first served as supplies last.
  • On January 8th and January 9th; PCR testing will be available outside of his District Office at 853 Forest Avenue from 10:00AM-4:00PM.

“Thank you Assemblyman Fall for helping our family stay safe this holiday season. Because of the dedication Mr. Fall has to the community, my wife and I were able to test in the safety of our home.” - Michael Scarcella, West Brighton resident. 

"First and foremost, I would like to thank Mayor Eric Adams and COVID Care for providing these tests. People should not be waiting in lines for hours to get a test and then waiting over a week to get their results back.

At this juncture of the pandemic, we need to do better. I remain committed to working with my government and community partners to make sure that we continue to have tests and additional testing options available for the North Shore." - Assemblyman Charles D. Fall
