COVID testing: If you are having COVID-19 symptoms, the Tubman-Chavez Center, located at 415 Euclid Ave. has been set up for free testing for active virus cases, without the need of a doctor’s referral. The testing for active infection is generally a swab of the nose or throat. That sample is then tested for live infection. Symptoms include fever or chills, cough, difficulty breathing, fatigue, headache, sore throat.
