COVID-19: Community Resources
On behalf of Niagara Falls Memorial Medical Center, I am writing to inform you that the medical center is sponsoring a county-wide effort to provide COVID-19 testing to anyone who requests the tests. There are no qualifying conditions to receive the test.
To make an appointment for a COVID-19 nose swab test, please follow these easy steps:
- Call 716-287-4496 to schedule an appointment at anyone of the three testing sites noted below.
- Call your primary care provider to have him/her FAX a test referral to Memorial. The FAX number is 716-278-4061.
- Please attend appointment at designated time. Testing takes just a few minutes and you can be tested while you sit in your car.

While we are all grappling with the Coronavirus situation internationally, nationally, and locally, we must remember that the health and safety of all individuals is the top priority. As we focus on public health and safety, it is critical that we think about the most vulnerable populations, and how we can remotely make this time one of unity and comfort. By giving of ourselves during this time, we elevate the meaning and importance of civic pride and responsibility.
As an institute of civic engagement, we see our role as a convener of information, suggested measures, and resources that can assist all populations. We are adding this valuable information to the Levesque Institute website to be a one-stop resource for all facets of our community. Each link has a list of resources that will be helpful to you during this time.
We hope this website will be informative, and give you ideas on how to make your time at home productive, while also keeping you informed on the most current information needed to stay abreast of what our personal responsibility is to “slowing the curve” on Coronavirus cases expanding.
