ANDERSONVILLE — A coronavirus testing site will open for restaurant and bar industry workers in Andersonville Wednesday.

The Andersonville Chamber of Commerce is hosting the free testing event from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Wednesday at Philadelphia Church on Clark Street, 5437 N. Clark St.

Industry workers will need to bring their state identification card or drivers license and insurance card. There will be no cost for those with health insurance, and those without can get a free test courtesy of the Federal Cares Act.

LabTech Diagnostics will provide nasal swab testing at the site.

The free testing comes as the city is set to roll back restrictions on bar and restaurant capacity. Bars can reopen for indoor service starting Thursday and restaurants can allow up to 40 percent capacity, up from 25 percent.
