TUCSON, Ariz. -- The Pima County Health Department is partnering with federal and state agencies to offer COVID-19 testing, with an emphasis on those who haven't been tested already.

“It’s exciting to provide additional tests for folks who may not have easy access to our permanent testing facility, whether it’s because of their jobs or other barriers,” Graves said. “Asymptomatic or presymptomatic COVID-19 transmission is a major factor driving this pandemic, so the more we can find the virus in folks who think they’re otherwise healthy and isolate them from others, we can slow the spread,” said Spencer Graves, Program Manager for the Pima County Health and Human Services.

“Asymptomatic or presymptomatic COVID-19 transmission is a major factor driving this pandemic, so the more we can find the virus in folks who think they’re otherwise healthy and isolate them from others, we can slow the spread.”

The tests are completely free and while preregistration is encouraged, you can also register on the spot.

Tests will take place across Tucson and in Green Valley.
