As Arizona’s coronavirus cases continue in a statewide surge, a local foundation is stepping in to help.
In partnership collaboration that consists of the Travis L. Williams American Legion Post 65, Maricopa County’s District 5 and the Arizona Chamber of Commerce and Industry, the testing will be held at South Mountain Community College (7050 S. 24th St.).
The free COVID-19 testing will be held Thursday and Friday, July 2-3 from 8 a.m. until 6 p.m. and will also be held on July 9-10 at the same time.
Patients will not be required to pre-register or display coronavirus symptoms in order to receive tests. Testing will also include antibody screenings.
Those who choose to be tested but bring a valid ID.
“Additional testing is needed immediately in south Phoenix to keep our communities safe,” HeroZona Foundation Founder Allan “AP” Powell said in a press release.
“We created this event to help bring additional testing sites to areas that need it the most.”
Tests will be administered by the south Florida-based Lab 24, which specializes in molecular testing.
