Free drive-thru COVID-19 testing at Kroc Center Thursday
Two South Mississippi nonprofits are teaming up in the fight against COVID.
Thursday there will be free drive thru COVID testing at the Salvation Army Kroc Center.
Free testing will be provided from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. tomorrow for anyone experiencing COVID-19 symptoms, such as fever, cough, and runny nose, through Coastal Family Health Center’s mobile unit at the Kroc Center thanks to a partnership between Coastal Family Health and the Salvation Army’s joint efforts to provide this free drive thru testing.
Salvation Army Area Command Major Bradley Caldwell said, “It’s just become available. We don’t have any particular protocols except to follow the drive-thru directions as they’re given. With the focus on family wellness, this is one way we can do this. We want to see that people who want to know, who need to know, can find out cheaply, affordably and locally what their condition is.”
Another free round of drive thru testing will be offered next month on Thursday, December 10th from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.
