**Media Note: While these testing sites are in public areas, those getting tested are patients. We ask that you do not film the site, but if you do please protect patient privacy by avoiding video/photos of faces, identifiable cars or license plates. Staff on location are wearing full PPE. For the safety of our patients and your media crews, do NOT approach patients as they are suspected to be COVID-positive. We want to provide our patients a comfortable environment with privacy as close as possible to that of a clinic and reduce potential liability issues incurred by media outlets.
