Free coronavirus testing is being made available to Ulster County farms.
The testing is only available to farms that hire seasonal workers. Participating farms must have a plan to isolate workers who test positive for COVID-19, and must have a plan to supplement the current workforce if the need arises.
The free testing is taking place in Ulster County because it gets one of the highest numbers of out-of-state workers during harvest season.
Any farms that want to participate can sign up at the state’s agriculture website.
