Covid-19 Self-Test Saliva PCR Testing Site @ Word Up


Word Up is partnering with Health + Hospitals to become a COVID-19 test site once again. Testing will be inside the bookstore at 2113 Amsterdam Avenue, New York NY 10032. Available for those ages 4 and older. 

What to know about COVID testing at Word Up:

  • Tests are PCR self-tests, and will primarily use a saliva-based test instead of a self-swab.
  • You cannot drink, eat, smoke, or chew gum 30 minutes before saliva collection.
  • You cannot mouthwash or brush teeth 2 hours before saliva collection.
  • These new tests will have a 24-36-hour turnaround time, are less invasive, and just as accurate.
  • Patients should be able to use a phone number or email address to register.
  • If a patient has any questions about their test result, they can contact the Mt. Sinai Call Center at 212-241-5227
