The events provide testing at no cost in areas where there are a disproportionate number of residents without access to transportation; those in cars or on foot can be tested and they can be asymptomatic.

The first event was in Greater Ridgecrest on Aug. 15 and others will follow in Clearwater, St. Petersburg and Tarpon Springs. The testing locations are also listed on the DOH-Pinellas Facebook page here: https://www.facebook.com/HealthyPinellas/events. The Saturday, Oct. 3 event’s site will be determined later based on community response.
