Fayette County Health Department To Offer Free HIV Testing

LEXINGTON, Ky. - The Fayette County Health Department is gearing up for National HIV Testing Day next Wednesday, June 27th. 

Department spokesperson Kevin Hall says anyone is invited to take part in free testing from 1 to 4 PM at their offices on Newtown Circle.

"These tests are free, anonymous, and confidential. So you can walk in, ask for the test, you can get it, and you can get on. It's a very quick turn around. Usually people are in there in 30 minutes or less," Hall says.

The program will also offer risk reduction counseling, community outreach, and group or individual intervention. For more information, call 859-288-2437.
