WE WILL BE DOING AN ALL DAY TESTING DRIVE THRU ON MAY 11TH AT THE DOOLY COUNTY HIGH SCHOOL. FREE OF CHARGE, NO APPOINTMENT NEEDED, AND ANYONE CAN GET TESTED.
I will be sending a flyer for you to post to your sites and for you to distribute if you’d like. I am suppose to get this tomorrow. We do not do repeat testing. That is our only stipulation. If you have already been tested and have tested positive we do not retest for negative results. This is for those who have not been tested and would like to be tested.
We are also scheduling one for May 19th. That one may be an after hours one so those that work can also be tested. We will see what the response is for Monday’s and go from there.
Lab Results: There is a lag in result timing. This is due to the increase in testing all over Georgia. We do not have rapid test available at this time….but what we do have is free.
Please help us get the word out. Like I said, I will be getting a flyer with the information to distribute tomorrow. I will send it out as soon as I get it so you all can help me get the word out. By identifying those that are positive we can help stop the spread of this virus by isolating/quarantining the individuals and their direct contacts. This is truly the only way to do this.
Have a restful night, stay safe, and God bless,
