El Rio to conduct COVID-19 testing for ‘blitz’

AZPM, May 1

El Rio Health will conduct COVID-19 testing at three Tucson locations during the state’s three-weekend “testing blitz” that starts Saturday.

The announcement comes after Walgreen’s and Banner Health were criticized for setting up testing locations that were inconvenient for people in Tucson’s central and south side areas.
