Ongoing and Upcoming
• The first federally-provided covid-19 testing site is operating through Sunday, Aug. 9, 7 a.m.–7 p.m. daily, at Kern County Fairgrounds (1142 South P. St., Gate 26, Bakersfield). The drive-through testing returns results in as little as three days, and is completely free. The (self) swab is done just partly in the nose, not the deeper ‘brain-tickling’ version. You do not have to be symptomatic to get tested. The county hopes to test 5,000 each day, so come drive through and help them reach their goal!
• Virtual Narcotics Anonymous and Al-Anon meetings are available during the covid-19 crisis. For NA, go to www.kcna.org/meetings.html or submit a ‘Join group’ request at the private ‘Quarantine NA-Kern County’ Facebook group. For Al-Anon, visit the Al-Anon WSO virtual meetings webpage at al-anon.org/al-anon-meetings/electronic-meetings/ or the ‘Al-Anon WSO’ Facebook page.
