·         For individuals without a vehicle near the entrance to the building on site.

The site will be open Monday through Saturday from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.  

Health officials urge the community to get tested at any of the free testing sites. Infected persons with little to no symptoms can still spread the virus to others and the people they spread it to may become seriously ill or even die.

Health officials also remind the public to continue wearing face coverings, wash your hands frequently and watch your distancing, regardless of whether you have or have not yet received the vaccine.
