LEXINGTON, Ky. (LEX 18) — The City's Mobile Neighborhood Testing program will move to Consolidated Baptist Church this week.

Located near the Hollow Creek, Winburn and Radcliffe-Marlboro neighborhoods, the program helps provide COVID-19 testing access to areas where there has been a disproportionate increase in cases.

This week's testing will be at Consolidated Baptist Church, 1625 Russell Cave Road, at the following times:

  • Thursday, July 30: 11:00 a.m.-7:00 p.m.
  • Friday, July 31: 12:00 p.m.-8:00 p.m.
  • Saturday, August 1: 9:00 a.m.-5:00 p.m.

"We know the importance of having free, easy access to COVID-19 testing," Gorton said. "This program makes getting tested much easier with both drive-up and walk-up access. Thank you to Pastor Richard Gaines and Consolidated Baptist Church for hosting the program this week."

"Protect your family. Come out and be tested," said Pastor Gaines.

Bluewater Diagnostic Laboratory will offer the tests at no cost to the patient. Health insurance information may be requested, but is not required to receive testing. No appointment is necessary. Tests are available to anyone. Bluewater can process up to 1,000 tests a day.

Drive-thru testing is also available seven days a week at the Walgreen's testing location at 2296 Executive Drive (the corner of Winchester Road and Executive Drive). Tests will continue until they run out of test kits. Online registration is required. Click here to register.
