A shout-out to the Georgia Department of Public Health for the free drive-in COVID-19 tests offered Saturday at a church on E.E. Butler Parkway. 

The event was notable for efficiency and the enthusiasm of the dozens of health care providers involved. 

Cars were smoothly directed into two fast-moving lines where nasal swabs were administered (they tickled.) A job well done and much appreciated. 

Thank you Georgia Department of Public Health.
