REOPENING June1, 2020

FSST will be REOPENING on JUNE 1, 2020 On March 20, 2020 I made the decision to close the business due to the Covid-19 virus. During that time we have increased our testing ability and increased our crew sizes to enable us to double our testing ability. We will be starting with "local testing" during the first 2 weeks of June. This means we will be testing departments where we will not need restaurants, hotels, etc. As the next phases open up, we will be expanding testing around the Northeast. Everyone will be taken care of ... we will try to catch up as quickly as we can. All phases of our operation will be conducted per NYS Official Covid 19 Guidelines. If you have any questions, please feel free to call the office at 866-788-7373 or call me directly at 585-259-1259l Steve Speer, Owner
