Residents must make an appointment for testing and provide proof of county residency and appointment confirmation.
Testing will next occur on Tuesday, July 21, however, barring any cancellations, all slots have been filled. Those who are unable to keep their appointments are asked to cancel so others may have an opportunity to fill those spots. If available, appointments can be made online at www.aclink.org.
