The Cathedral of St. John the Divine has lent a hand in various ways since the start of the pandemic — whether as a place to soothe the soul and memorialize Covid victims, or as a health care location.

It was briefly set up as a hospital for patients from Mt. Sinai. Now it’s becoming a testing site.

In partnership with NYC Health + Hospitals, the Cathedral will offer free, safe, and confidential COVID-19 testing beginning on Tuesday, February 16 from 9:30AM to 3:30PM at The Cathedral Church of Saint John the Divine, 1047 Amsterdam Avenue, Manhattan.

Additional testing dates will be available from 9:30 to 3:30 PM on:

  • Thursday, February 18
  • Monday, February 22
  • Tuesday, February 23
  • Wednesday, February 24
  • Thursday, February 25

With assistance from trained staff, self-swab RT-PCR testing will be available. All testing is free, with no appointment needed and no insurance required, regardless of immigration status. Results will be shared via email with participants in under 72 hours.

      Ummmmmm…genuinely happy for people who feel that they are forever past needing these services, but many schools and employers still require testing for those who have not yet been fortunate enough to be vaccinated. Thank you Cathedral of St. John, as always, for being a part of ongoing (and free!) community outreach as NYC continues to move forward from this year of devastation.
