Tests will take place in a drive-thru facility behind the medical center at 1555 Exchange Ave. Appointments are not necessary, as tests will be given on a first-come, first-served basis.

The second event, scheduled for Feb. 9 at the Faulkner County Health Unit will run from 1:30-6 p.m. The unit is located at 811 N. Creek Dr. Tests will be available for anyone, no matter if they have symptoms. Additionally, there will be no out-of-pocket expense for the test.
