Testing will be available to those 5 and older. Registration for the event is preferred, and neighbors can register here. Walk-ups will be permitted while supplies last, according to organizers.
COVID-19 tests will be free and available regardless of immigration status. Health insurance is not required to get a test, although those with insurance are asked to bring their card.
Those with a valid identification card are asked to bring it to the appointment, but an ID is not required for a test.
