People can go to the testing center on Bartow Avenue. Once there, state troopers will help guide them through the cones. Officials tell News 12 anyone without an appointment will be turned away. 
Gov. Andrew Cuomo says it is important to have pop-up centers to keep the number of people in the hospital down and to not overwhelm the health care system.
