OSSINING, NY — Star of Bethlehem Baptist Church and Open Door Family Center are joining forces to hold an outdoor health fair from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday.
The free event will include coronavirus testing and rapid HIV testing, plus giveaways, including face masks and educational materials. Health experts will be on hand to talk about COVID-19 and protecting families.
“In light of how the virus has disproportionally affected people of color, I thought it was important for our congregants and others in the community to get tested and know of their status and how to protect themselves and their families,” said The Reverend Shaun Ellison Jones, senior pastor of Star of Bethlehem Baptist Church. “I know Open Door has been conducting testing at their sites for some time, but this will be the first large-scale community testing site from Sleepy Hollow to Cortlandt that I am aware of.”
