There was another big turnout at the COVID-19 community testing today.

The community testing was held at the Tamuning Elementary School Wednesday morning. By 10 a.m. — just an hour after opening — the car line for the testing had to be closed. However, those walking in for testing were accepted until 12 noon

Bertha Taijeron, a program coordinator for Public Health, says that she counted at least 150 cars in line when she got to the testing site this morning.

“On the way in, I counted at least 150 cars…so I’m guessing that there will be over 200 cars, easily. I anticipate that this is again going to be one of the largest testing sites. In Tamuning, we always get a large group. As we continue to go out there, the number of residents who go out to get tested continues to increase. We always see the numbers continue to rise in terms of those who wanted to get tested during the community-wide expanded testing efforts,” Taijeron said.

There will be more drive-thru/walk-in community testing tomorrow at the Asan-Maina Mayor’s Office from 9 a.m. to 12 noon. Testing is free and no symptoms are needed to qualify for testing.
