“To ensure that our community has resources to getting tested, you know, especially the southeastern region here,” said Maria Davis, health educator for the center. “There may not be as many people who have the resources to actually go to the doctor, so I think the ultimate goal in here, it’s really just be able to provide that for the community.”

Davis said they will do the testing until the end of this year or until they run out of supplies.

She said anyone should get tested that is having symptoms or if you were around someone who is COVID-19 positive. They are trying to get a better idea of who has COVID-19, but hasn’t gotten tested.
