Oak Grove AME Zion Church in Greensboro is giving you a $10 gift card when you get a COVID test or a $100 gift card with your first dose of a COVID vaccine

GREENSBORO, N.C. — COVID-19 testing is in high demand right now as more people leave their home offices and go back to work in person.  With student-athletes testing for the virus weekly following COVID protocols and events requiring negative tests or proof of vaccination to get into events, appointments to get a COVID test or a vaccine are being booked several days out.

You skip the line, get a COVID test or vaccine, plus put some money in your pocket on Saturday, September 18.
