ST. LOUIS (KMOV.com) -- Faith & For the Sake of All is partnering with CareSTL Health to provide free COVID-19 testing to the hardest hit areas of the St. Louis region.
According to the organization, they tested over 900 individuals in 60 days during this summer's spike by partnering with local Black congregations. As we are facing a third surge of COVID-19 and flu season, access to testing and flu shots is very important.
Faith & For the Sake of All provides testing sites in predominantly Black areas of north St. Louis city and county.
In addition to free testing, individuals will receive free masks and hand sanitizer. Some partnering congregations also offer food giveaways.
Flu shots are available at select locations while supplies last and are recommended for ages 3-65.
