Coronavirus Drive-Through Testing

New York State has partnered with Stony Brook University to begin drive-through testing for the coronavirus at Stony Brook University’s South P Lot off Stony Brook Road. Residents must make advance appointments by calling 888-364-3065. Hours of operation are seven days a week, 7 am to 7 pm.

Anyone from across Long Island, not just in Suffolk, who has contacted the New York State Department of Health (DOH) at 888-364-3065 and is part of the highest-risk population as determined by DOH will be tested. Anyone who believes they’re at risk should call the DOH Hotline, 888-364-3065, and talk to experts to determine if and how they should be tested.

Walk-ins are not accepted and will not be seen.

Please note: All test results will be provided by the Department of Health. Call the DOH Hotline at 888-364-3065.

Stony Brook Medicine is now offering Telehealth visits, which will allow our patients to receive our high-quality care from the safety and privacy of their home. To see if your needs can be met virtually, please call your physician’s office.

If you have already booked a Telehealth visit and have application-related questions, please call one of our representatives at (631) 638-0597 Monday through Friday from 8 am to 6 pm. They will be happy to assist you. If you require support outside of these hours, please visit

Coronavirus Patient Triage

If you think you have been exposed to the coronavirus (COVID-19) and develop a fever and symptoms, such as cough or difficulty breathing, call your healthcare provider for medical advice.

If you require evaluation by a medical professional or have been advised by your doctor to seek urgent medical care, please go directly to Stony Brook University Hospital’s Emergency Department.

From 9 am to 11 pm, patients driving to the ED entrance will be greeted and screened while in their vehicles by one of our staff members. All patients will be evaluated by staff to determine the most appropriate care setting. This may include the main Emergency Department or the ER Field Satellite at Stony Brook University’s South P Lot. This process is designed to provide a safe and high-quality care experience for all patients seeking treatment.

Stony Brook Now Accepting Donations

In order to stay ahead of the demand for personal protective equipment (PPE) during the current coronavirus outbreak, Stony Brook University is hosting a donation drive, accepting donations in person and via mail.

Stony Brook University will be collecting donations of personal protective equipment (PPE), which will be given to Stony Brook University Hospital. The university is currently accepting PPE donations that include face shields, N95 3M 1860 masks, protective eyewear, goggles, disinfectant wipes, hand sanitizer and other supplies required for staff safety. The PPE will then be distributed to medical personnel to use while interacting with patients who are suspected of and confirmed with coronavirus.

To donate items, please email so that a drop-off time and location can be arranged.

With the number of COVID-19 patients continuing to increase, the Della Pietra Family's $500,000 dollar-for-dollar challenge for critical supplies and treatments has been extended by the Clarkson and Heintzelman Family to $750,000. Support the Coronavirus Crisis Challenge.
