“Testing is just one of the major components we’re implementing to overcome this virus,” President Parker said. “We also want to continue to educate the public on CDC recommended safety protocols. Any opportunity we have to talk about safety for our community, we should do that. My colleagues and I have been encouraged by the access to zip code data so we can begin to intentionally target the areas that have been hit the hardest by this as we apply for state and federal relief funding.”
