Anyone is welcome to attend--you don't need to be part of the Karen or Burmese community.

As always, testing will take place outside. You do not need to be a Jericho Road patient, have insurance, make an appointment, have a prescription, or have a primary care physician. Barrier-free! Please wear a mask if you have one. Please bring ID and your insurance card if you have one.
