These events, held at sites throughout the city, are intended for those who live in the immediate neighborhood near the testing site and may not have insurance, identification or access to care, according to the city’s website. Identification is encouraged but not required.

Residents that get tested at these sites will receive take-home instructions after and results within three to five days.
