The ever changing pandemic is still a very clear and present danger to Americans. The cases continue to rise in West Alabama and almost 200 inpatients are in DCH at the moment. The pandemic has caused many people to be fatigued of the pandemic, however our safety is of the utmost importance.

We need to stay safe and continue to wear our masks, wash our hands, practice social distance, stay at home and hand sanitize as much as possible. Getting tested for COVID-19 is important for you, your family and the local community until we defeat this pandemic.

The Liberty Missionary Baptist Church is teaming up with the American Medical Screening, Inc. to provide a FREE COVID-19 testing event. The event will offer walk up and drive-thru services for you. The testing will be held Sunday January 24, 2021, from 12:45pm until 4:45 pm. Liberty Missionary Baptist Church is located 7400 Liberty Baptist Drive in Tuscaloosa right off Highway 11 going towards Fosters right behind Williams Service Funeral Home.

Pastor William McDowell of the Liberty Baptist Church encourages everyone to attend the event to get tested especially if you feel you have symptoms. The African American community and other minorities are at greater risk due to preexisting conditions. It is vital to eat healthy, drink water, exercise, get regular check ups and social distance during the pandemic to fight COVID-19.

If you do not have insurance its no problem! All are welcome to test and no appointment is necessary. You just need a photo ID and insurance card if you have medical insurance.
