Health officials and community leaders continue to urge local residents to get tested for the coronavirus even if they don't feel sick. And the message is slowly getting out.

A line of people were waiting outside the Greenfield Family Resource Center Friday morning, the site of another free testing site organized by the Latino COVID-19 Task Force. Local health workers provided the nasal test. It's the third free testing event at the center since last month.

Greenfield is in the 93307 area code which according to the Health Department's COVID-19 dashboard has the highest concentration of people who have tested positive so far, with nearly 4,900 cases. Green says more than 200 people turned out for the first testing session last month.

There is another free event scheduled for this Tuesday, November 17th.
