The Clayton County Board of Commissioners, Clayton County Public Schools, and Clayton County Fire and Emergency Services are joining forces to hand out free at-home COVID-19 test kits this Thursday from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. while supplies last.
“As COVID-19 numbers continue to rise and more variants are introduced, it’s important that we provide more opportunities for residents to be tested,” said Chairman Jeff Turner. “Although there are various testing sites throughout the county, we recognize that everyone isn’t able to travel those distances. Distributing at-home test kits will help to ensure more residents can get tested.”
You can pick up your test kit at any of these locations:
- Southern Crescent Stadium, 6231 Garden Walk Blvd., Riverdale
- Tara Stadium, 1055 Battle Creek Road, Jonesboro
- Twelve Oaks Stadium, 1587 McDonough Road, Hampton
Here’s what to expect:
- You will have to show a photo ID to prove you live in Clayton County.
- CCFES will hand out one Ziploc bag of test kits to each vehicle.
- The bag will have a sticker indicating that the tests came from the Board of Commissioners.
