15 Apr Free Covid-19 Tests for all Tennesseans starting April 18
Any Tennessean who wants a free COVID-19 test will be able to get one starting this weekend, Governor Bill Lee announced Wednesday.
The expanded testing will be available even if you don’t have traditional symptoms, and results will be available in as soon as 72 hours.
Governor Lee said the expansion in testing comes after “rapid improvements” made by the state’s Unified-Command Group made up of the Tennessee Department of Health, Tennessee Department of Military and Tennessee Emergency Management Agency (TEMA)
On Saturday April 18 and Sunday April 19, the Tennessee National Guard will establish 15 drive-through testing sites across the state. Drive-through testing also will be available April 25-26 and May 2-3.
Testing will be handled by Tennessee Department of Health nurses and National Guard medics.
