While open to anyone in the community, Marshall, Monongalia, Preston and Wayne counties were selected as part of the Herbert Henderson Office of Minority Affairs, DHHR and the West Virginia National Guard testing initiative focused on counties and communities with high African American populations given the disparities by race being seen with COVID-19 both nationally and in West Virginia.

Mercer County was selected as part of the ongoing effort to expand testing opportunities in areas with evidence of COVID-19 community transmission.

Attendees should bring identification, such as a driver’s license or proof of address, to help in returning test results. Those under the age of 18 must be accompanied by a parent or legal guardian.

The testing is free and available to all residents in selected counties, including asymptomatic individuals.
