GEMA Provides Information on Ways to Get Referrals for COVID-19 Testing and Testing Site Locations

Testing for COVID-19 has become more widely available over the last few weeks.  The Georgia Emergency Management Agency has released information on ways to get referrals for testing and testing site locations.  Identifying individuals who are positive and encouraging them to self-quarantine is a key factor in helping to slow the spread of COVID-19.  Please make sure to share this information with your community.
