Photo Set: Testing comes to West Louisville

As widespread COVID-19 testing becomes increasingly urgent to ultimately control the virus, a testing site on 15th Street provided free, rapid tests at St. Stephen Baptist Church last Saturday. Volunteer medical professionals went up to each vehicle to conduct the test, which began with a finger prick. If the results of the finger prick came back positive, an additional swab test would be administered. The joint initiative between Goodwill Industries, Teresa and Frank Bridgewaters and the Hope Wellness Center aims to provide accessible testing in West Louisville.
