Coastal Family Health Clinic and Salvation Army team up for free COVID-19 testing

Coastal Family Health teamed up with the Salvation Army Kroc Center in Biloxi to provide free coronavirus testing to the community.

The drive-thru style format allowed residents with any symptoms of COVID-19 to get tested and receive results within 24 to 48 hours.

It’s all an effort to help with the recent spike of COVID-19 cases in Mississippi. The two non-profits say they will do anything and everything they can to help limit the spread of COVID-19. Coastal Family Health Care Outreach Programs Manager Cheyneitha Fountain said, “We try to go out in the community to help our underserved. A lot of people have transportation barriers, so what we do is we crusade through the community to provide these services.”

Another free round of drive-thru testing will be offered next month on Thursday, December 10th from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.
