CHARLESTON, WV – The Herbert Henderson Office of Minority Affairs (HHOMA) announced an upcoming free COVID-19 testing location at the Ranson Civic Center in Jefferson County, 431 W. 2nd Avenue, Ranson, WV 25438.

The COVID-19 testing locations are organized, in part, by Gov. Jim Justice’s COVID-19 Advisory Commission on African American Disparities in order to provide testing opportunities to residents in counties with high minority populations and evidence of COVID-19 transmission.
“The COVID-19 Advisory Commission on African American Disparities thanks Governor Justice for his unwavering commitment to this important work and to reducing racial disparities in healthcare, as well as other areas,” HHOMA Executive Director Jill Upson said.
Since May, free testing has been offered by HHOMA in partnership with the West Virginia Department of Health and Human Resources, the West Virginia National Guard, local health departments, and various community partners from across the state.
This event and future COVID-19 testing locations are available for free to all residents, including asymptomatic individuals. Proof of insurance is not required. Attendees should bring identification, such as a driver’s license or proof of address. Those under the age of 18 must be accompanied by a parent or legal guardian.
