COVID-19 Testing Car Line

First Anniversary of NIH’s COVID-19 Testing Car Line

Posted on by

I joined approximately 80 volunteers to mark the one-year anniversary of NIH’s COVID-19 Testing Car Line. The event was held at NIH’s Gateway entrance on March 17. Pictured here with me are some of the awesome volunteers, from various NIH institutes, centers, and offices, who have helped out in many ways and at many times throughout the year to test staff who report symptoms of COVID-19. Here are some fun facts from the line: First tests performed: March 18, 2020; Coldest Day: 25 degrees on January 29, 2021; Hottest Day: 99 degrees on July 20, 2020; Distinct Staff Tested: 5,291; Total Samples Taken: 7,797; Total Carline Positives: 502.
