TEMPORARY COVID-19 PROCEDURES
Nashville CARES is partnering with the State of TN to provide free OraQuick In-Home HIV Testing Kits upon request. This new alternative testing option is in response to the COVID-19 crisis our community and country is currently battling.
For more information on OraQuick In-Home HIV Testing Kits, please contact Lisa Binkley, Associate Director of Prevention and Education at (615) 761-4474.
Drive-thru Testing Services will be available every Friday from 9am-4pm at our Thompson Lane location through the end of 2020.
Drive-thru testing will include HIV (results in 5 minutes) and HCV (results by end of day).

At this time, the Nashville CARES has suspended HIV and HCV testing services in the field. This includes testing in the Emergency Departments, correctional and treatment facilities. An Educator and Tester will be on-site daily. Testing inquires will be assessed on a case by case basis. Call 615-761-4474 for information and appointments.
