It is critical to know before attending these screenings that those without symptoms of COVID-19 infection do not need testing for COVID-19. We are currently in allergy season, and having allergy symptoms such as sneezing, and itchy eyes, nose or throat is not an indication for testing.
Please try to limit two people per vehicle to avoid unnecessary risk for viral spread. No insurance is required for screening.
