Since starting testing in July, ONSMS has hosted free weekly testing throughout communities in North Carolina, in conjunction with local organizations like the Andrew A. Best Medical Society in Greenville; the Greensboro Housing Authority; Quality Comprehensive Care Center in Charlotte; and the Durham Academy of Medicine, Dentistry, and Pharmacy. This is a statewide effort to help keep residents safe during the pandemic, particularly vulnerable communities such as African American and Latinx communities.
For Saturday’s testing, materials will be available in Spanish and in English to help residents get the facts necessary to keep themselves safe during this global pandemic.
