New Birth Missionary Baptist Church, the 100 Black Men of DeKalb County and the Family Health Centers of Georgia are partnering to host free, COVID-19 testing on June 30.
The free testing will be held from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at New Birth Missionary Baptist Church’s campus, 6400 Woodrow Road in Stonecrest. Drive-thru and walk-up testing will be available.
“There is an undeniable need for testing in our community and I am thankful for the partnerships that enable us to provide this valuable resource at absolutely no cost,” said New Birth’s Senior Pastor JamalBryant, who recently donated 10,000 protective masks to DeKalb County inmates. “We are still experiencing an uptick in COVID-19 cases so we must remain vigilant in our fight against this global threat.”
The collaborative initiative is supported onsite by the 100 Black Men of DeKalb County whose mission focuses on promoting health and wellness in underserved communities.
Medical professionals with the Family Health Centers of Georgia and trained volunteers will staff the drive-through.
Individuals with positive test results will be consulted and provided additional medical treatment. No registration is required. All individuals being tested must present a valid photo ID. Participants should enter through the Evans Mill Road or Lithonia Industrial Boulevard entrances. Walk-up testing is also available.
