This means that a lot of people will be traveling and moving, causing more person-to-person contact and a higher risk of COVID-19 infection. That’s why we’re offering free PCR testing: to ensure that all of us stay safe in the season of change. Be sure to get your PCR test and help us stop the spread of COVID-19!
