Coronavirus testing begins in Nashville public housing communities
NASHVILLE, Tenn. (Mike Osborne) -- Two days of coronavirus testing get underway Thursday in Nashville’s Public Housing Projects.
WTVF-TV says free testing will be available from noon to 6 p.m. at Parkway Terrace, Edgehill, Vine Hill, Levy Place, and Neighborhood Housing. Testing will run from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. at Cayce Place and CWA Plaza.
Testing is planned for seven more public housing sites Friday. You can find the complete list copied below.
The initiative is part of a statewide effort by Gov. Bill Lee’s COVID-19 Unified Command to test Tennessee’s most vulnerable residents. Testing is taking place at dozens of public housing sites Thursday and Friday in Memphis, Knoxville and Chattanooga as well.
Drive-through testing is available weekdays in Nashville daily at three sites. They include the Nissan Stadium parking lot, Meharry Medical College and the old KMart site on Murfreesboro Pike in Antioch. Testing is also available weekdays at Nashville's public health clinics.
