More than 11K people got free coronavirus tests over weekend

More than 11,000 Tennesseans got tested for the coronavirus over the weekend as the state opened 33 free sites manned by the Tennessee National Guard and the state Department of Health personnel.

The 11,230 tests set a new two-day high for testing since the pandemic reached the state about five weeks ago, WPLN-FM reports. A total of about 97,000 tests have been given so far.

“If I know today I have a clean slate, then going forward I know that at least as of today, I’m good,” Christine Garner of Hendersonville told the public radio station. “Then I’d probably want to be tested again, since I have to keep meeting with people.”
