“I want to thank Governor Andrew Cuomo, New York State Attorney General Letitia James, U.S. Congressman Gregory Meeks, U.S. Congressman Hakeem Jeffries, and New York State Assembly Speaker Carl Heastie for creating this important partnership that will provide vital medical and services information, as well access to COVID-19 diagnostic testing to our most vulnerable communities,” said Bronx Borough President Ruben Diaz, Jr.
