CareSouth Carolina officials said 455 people were tested for COVID-19 during a free drive-through testing event Tuesday at Northeastern Technical College.
In addition to the testing, there was a food giveaway, census information, and encouraging people to vote in the primary.
The event was a collaboration of CareSouth Carolina, Department of Health and Environmental Control, Marlboro Coordinating Council, and Marlboro Empowerment Coalition.
Ann Lewis, CEO of CareSouth Carolina, noted the problem with coronavirus is that anyone could be walking around with it and not know he or she has it.
“It is a very sneaky virus,” she said.
Test results should be available in two to three days.
