With flu season nearing, Stony Brook Southampton Hospital has announced that it will offer Influenza A, Influenza B and COVID PCR testing, by appointment only, at multiple East End locations. Testing is solely available by appointment and with a physician's prescription.

"COVID-19 symptoms are similar to the flu and we are providing influenza testing because it is important to get the correct diagnosis," said Fredric I. Weinbaum, MD, Chief Medical Officer and Chief Operating Officer, Stony Brook Southampton Hospital.

Testing sites include Parrish Memorial Hall in Southampton, East Hampton High School, and Shelter Island Meeting House Lane Medical Practice.

Parrish Memorial Hall (240 Meeting House Lane, Southampton) will _- COVID-19 PCR, Influenza A and Influenza B on Mondays through Saturdays from 8:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. Results of the flu test will be available within 24 hours (except Sundays), while COVID-19 Test results are reported with 72 hours. To schedule same-day Influenza Testing or Flu and COVID Testing, call 631-396-6406 or 631-461-6076.

A COVID-19 PCR and Influenza A and B testing process has been established at East Hampton High School (2 Long Lane, East Hampton) for the East Hampton School District. COVID-19 PCR Swab Testing and Influenza will also be available for those with a prescription from a Meeting House Lane Medical Practice or a local community provider. Appointments will be available on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. To schedule testing, call 631-668-3705.

Patients must provide a valid ID/license and insurance card at the time of testing. Those who self-pay must do so in advance while scheduling the test.

"To help prevent the spread of COVID-19, wear a mask, maintain social distancing and wash your hands frequently. These measures, along with a flu vaccine, can also help prevent spreading the flu virus," Dr. Weinbaum added.
