The non-profit organization is conducting the tests at the CPLC Early Childhood Development Center on 649 9th Avenue in San Luis.

The tests are by walk-up only and no appointment is necessary. It is also free of charge with a 48-hour turnaround for results.

CPLC began the free testing Thursday, and runs until Friday evening at 5.

These COVID-19 tests are conducted with a nasal swab.

As vaccines rollout across the country, CPLC is also looking into ways they can help distribute it once it's available to the general public.
