  • Joy Park Community Center, 825 Fuller Street

Each site was give approximately 805 tests to distribute with a limit of one per person present in a vehicle.

“Given the current COVID-19 surge, supply chain disruptions and limited availability of testing appointments, we want to do our part in helping to make at-home test kits available in the communities with the lowest vaccination rates,” Akron City Council president Margo Sommerville said.
