Free COVID-19 testing sites in Moss Point
Tomorrow Moss Point residents have another chance to get tested for COVID-19 for free.
The Moss Point Visionary Circle has partnered with Coastal Family Health to provide testing to the community as part of the Moss Point COVID-19 Community Outreach Project.
This is a response to emerging data that suggests racial and ethnic minority populations are bearing a disproportionate burden of illness and death from COVID-19.
The Moss Point Visionary Circle wants to raise awareness of the positive cases in the Moss Point area and make sure everyone has access to free testing. Moss Point Visionary Circle Founder Darlene Carter said, “It is unfortunate that the coronavirus has somewhat ravaged our community, but it speaks to the underlying conditions that people under serve minority populations. A lot of people in our community have other conditions that make this much worse.”
Free testing will take place again tomorrow at the Southgate Plaza, also known as the Old Winn Dixie Shopping Center, from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m.
