The Seventh Episcopal District of the African Methodist Episcopal Church will host a series of free COVID-19 testing sites across South Carolina July 8-11, including one at Colleton County High School on July 11 from 10 a.m.-2 p.m.
“The number of positive COVID-19 cases here in the state continues to skyrocket, and Black South Carolinians are disproportionately affected,” said Bishop Samuel L. Green Sr., presiding bishop of the Seventh Episcopal District of the A.M.E. Church. “As an invested and committed entity in the South Carolina community, we want to help by offering a series of free testing sites so that everyone may know their status and continue their personal responsibility to keep themselves and others safe.”
No prior registration or doctor’s referral is required to be tested. Each site offers free walk-up and drive-through testing. All participants must wear a mask.
“As a part of our service to the people of God, the church is charged to serve, and serving in today’s world means that we must encourage everyone to be tested for COVID-19 in order to reduce the spread of this pandemic,” said the Rev. Kathy Shider of Walterboro.
