As part of its “Knowvember” campaign starting Monday, the city is asking every resident to commit to getting at least two free coronavirus tests in November, and again in December. The testing is part of the city’s “Stop the Spread” initiative and is an effort to make asymptomatic carriers of the virus aware they are infected so they can isolate or quarantine.
Testing hours at the Old Town Hall in Downtown Salem are expanded to 9 a.m. to 2 pm. Mondays through Wednesdays, Thursdays from 1 to 6 p.m. and Fridays from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.
The testing at Salem High School will run from 4 to 8 p.m. on weekdays and Saturdays from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.
The hours will be in effect through Dec. 31, 2020 and will be closed on holidays.
