COVID-19 State Testing Sites consolidated to Mega Sites

Several State COVID-19 testing sites will be closed effective Thursday, April 1, 2021, and resources will be consolidated to existing COVID-19 testing mega sites.

Officials share that, while the number of cases has slowed down, 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, especially if the person is one of our most vulnerable residents such as our seniors, people with underlying health conditions and those who are immunocompromised,” health officials shared.
