Alternate ways to get this done have been identified:

  1. FL Occupation Health Services can still do training and testing at their office in Rochester with only 4 at a time.  Donna Lawrence is the contact and her phone number is:  585-244-4771  
  2. A local contact, Bruce Wallace, can also do the training and testing. He can do groups of 10 and asks that you work with your neighbors to put that together.  His contact is:  315-573-4654  
    • When you connect with either of these options, please ask them about fees and additional concerns about health and safety in light of the COVID- 19 situation.
