Message from the LBA President

The Police Conference of New York (PCNY) and The New York State Association of PBAs (NYSAP) just completed a conference call with Governor Andrew Cuomo’s staff regarding COVID-19 Anti-Body Testing of First Responders.

We were informed that starting next week all Police Officers in the state will be given priority access to anti-body tests. All testing will be voluntary and coordinated through the Police Unions. The test is done by drawing a small amount of blood and the results will be provided to the individual officer not the police department. Results will be provided to the
Individual officer within a week.

Initial testing will be conducted in New York’s “Hot Spots”: New York City, Long Island, Westchester, and Rockland. It will then expand to every other area in the state.

Be safe.

Fraternally,
