Highlands Cashiers Health Foundation Sponsors FREE Post-Holiday COVID-19 Testing

“This post-holiday timeframe is a critical time to be tested because CDC and science tells us positive cases will likely increase after travel and gatherings with family and friends. Identifying people with the virus helps to avoid a sudden spike, slow the rate of new infections, lower the overall number of cases, ease the pressure on health services, keep our schools open, workforce employed and community activity flowing.” Dr. Richard Ellin, Board member and leader of the HCHF testing project.
