All events are from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m., or until test kits run out (200 tests per day, per location). These testing events are FREE to eligible individuals (see list at right), and you do not need medical insurance to receive a test.  Please note that antibody testing WILL NOT BE OFFERED at these events. You are welcome to drive-thru, walk-up or arrive on a bicycle.  Please do not arrive prior to 8 a.m., as space for vehicles at these locations is limited.
