NY malls becoming COVID test centers
New York mall owners are turning their parking lots into corona virus testing centers and donating space for blood drives.
Long Island-based Mason Asset Management, Namdar Realty Group, and CH Capital Group have transformed the parking lot of The Shops at Ithaca Mall (pictured top) into a Covid-19 drive-through test site, working in conjunction with Cayuga Medical Center and Tompkins County officials.
The Sampling Center will be situated at the front of the shopping center, which is located at 40 Catherwood Road in Ithaca, New York.
“We are thrilled to be offering Cayuga Medical Center a space to open a Covid-19 drive-through test site, which will provide our local community with much needed testing capabilities,” said Jelson Santos, Director of Operations at Namdar Realty Group, the branch of the owner-operator partnership which manages its properties.
“While our country continues to fight the spread of this unprecedented pandemic, we are committed to doing everything we can to best support the communities within which we operate.”
