During this coming week, testing kits in Pelham and Choctaw County are scheduled for delivery and pickup, with more expected.

The CAP says they are working to bring kits to the rural and underserved communities in Alabama, including focusing services to the Hispanic community.

“It’s a good thing for us to be able to give back to the Hispanic community in particular because they are such a huge part of our clientele. CAP’s great because CAP’s able to facilitate us being able to get these samples where we need them in a timely fashion so we can make sure we can let our patients know that they didn’t waste their time coming out here.”, said Justin Johnston, Executive Director of the Community of Hope.
