This past weekend, Goodwill joined the Mardrian Group with providing resources to support novel coronavirus testing for West Louisville residents. The drive-thru testing was administered by volunteer healthcare professionals associated with the Hope Wellness Center – a West Louisville medical office operated by the nonprofit Black Community Development Corporation.

Testing was scheduled from 9 a.m. – 3 p.m. However, because people were eager to learn their COVID-19 status, they began lining up as early as 7 a.m. Saturday. All total, there were six confirmed positive tests and two questionable tests that will be confirmed later today. All six confirmed cases were asymptomatic. The event attracted seven medical professionals who volunteered to administer the tests, all whom were tested from their cars and facilitated by the Louisville Metro Police Department.
