North Georgia – In honor of National HIV Testing Day, free HIV testing will be offered in the North Georgia Health District on Monday, June 27th, at The Living Bridge Centers in Dalton and Canton and at the Cherokee, Fannin, Gilmer, Murray, Pickens, and Whitfield County Health Departments. Walk-ins are welcome during regular clinic hours! Click HERE to check clinic hours for each location.
The Living Bridge Centers are also providing complementary condoms, cups, stickers, and more that day. The county health departments will offer a variety of items, as well.
Each year on June 27th, National HIV Testing Day (NHTD) is recognized as a day to emphasize and encourage HIV testing. This year, NHTD is observed as COVID-19 and HIV epidemics continue to affect our communities and healthcare infrastructures.
Just as self-care has been particularly critical during the COVID-19 pandemic, HIV testing is self-care that helps people know their HIV status so they can begin the prevention or treatment they need to live a long and healthy life, regardless of their status.
For anyone unable to go to The Living Bridge Centers or county health departments on National HIV Testing Day, a free HIV self-test kit may be ordered online at https://www.gacapus.com/r/get-tested/ (if at any time that link seems to not function properly, please use this link instead: https://sendss.state.ga.us/sendss/!hivcasemanagement.pretestsurvey1).
