A drive-through coronavirus test

AUGUSTA, Ga. (WRDW/WAGT) -- Free coronavirus testing will be offered today in the third such event organized by the Augusta Fire Department/EMA.

The testing will take place from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at Good Shepherd Baptist Church, 1714 Olive Road.

To pre-register, Richmond County residents can call 311, while those outside the county can call 706-821-2300. Walk-ups and those who have not pre-registered will be accepted, but they may need to wait longer.

The Augusta testing follows a record-setting event for Augusta Fire/EMA. Last Friday, 368 people were tested at a free event held by the city. That total eclipsed the previous single-day testing record of 267 the week before.
