On Friday, Feb. 19, a COVID-19 community testing and resource distribution event will be held from 9 a.m. - 4 p.m. at the Warren County High School parking lot located at 149 Campus Drive in Warrenton. At this drive-up event, people who get tested will also receive FREE groceries and FREE personal protective equipment such as masks, gloves and sanitizer. Information about the Coronavirus vaccine will also be available.

North Carolina continues to see high numbers of Coronavirus cases, hospitalizations and deaths. The CDC and local health departments recommend that we all continue to get tested and observe all safety precautions. Even with the distribution of the vaccine, getting tested and knowing your COVID status are very important for your safety and the safety of those around you.

The Warren County Health Department and GRRO are pleased to partner with Groundwater Solutions and Genesis Project 1 to bring this important health resource to Warren County. Testing and food distributions will be provided through drive-up service with minimal contact, in accordance with all precautions recommended for the prevention of the spread of the Coronavirus.

Please remember to practice the 3 Ws — Wear a face covering — Wait 6 feet apart —Wash your hands often!
