ALLEGANY, NY — Allegany-Limestone Superintendent of Schools Anthony Giannicchi sent the following message Monday through SchoolMessenger, a notification service used by school systems to connect with parents, students and staff through voice, SMS text, email and social media:

"The Health Department is conducting mobile testing for the COVID virus at the bus garage. They are conducting tests as the county receives them. If you are on Maple Avenue, you will notice the road is closed. You can drive by to get to the elementary school. The reason the road is closed is to control the flow of traffic. They will test 5-6 people per hour when they are testing.  At the bus garage parking lot, you will be met by law enforcement and again at another check point. You can only get tested with a note from the Health Department. The people being tested do not get out of their car, and they are not in contact with any materials at the bus garage, The buses are not located near the testing area. All buses being used for lunch and work delivery will be stored outside of the bus garage while testing is being conducted. The area is disinfected once the testing is complete. The Department of Health and school district are taking all precautions to ensure the safety of our students and employees."
