TESTING UPDATE: Some success finding home testing kits; lines long at health department

Image


In terms of finding home testing kits around Milledgeville-Baldwin County, there has been some marginal  success.

"CVS on MLK the other night right behind the pharmacy count, 2 for 25," wrote one commenter on Baldwin 2k's Milledgeville Random Questions & Rants Facebook group page, while another added "I've had luck at Walgreens, but it's definitely hit or miss."

Meanwhile, a third reader commented "I've only been able to get them at CVS on Columbia. Limit 2," while another person recommended walmart.com and the Walmart app for in-store alerts.

"I had the walmart app, and ordered them but they were out of stock...... it alerted me when they came in stock and I drove up there as they were putting em on the shelf. 2 for 14.99," read the post.

CVS and Walgreen's, meanwhile, continue to be very spotty, while MED-LAKE LABORATORIES on Ga. 22 "was booked until Monday" earlier this week.
