Mt. Juliet partners with Kroger Health for free COVID-19 drive-thru testing

MOUNT JULIET, TN (WSMV) - Free COVID-19 testing is continuing in Mt. Juliet this week.

The city says last week’s testing saw a huge turnout, so they’ve once again partnered with Kroger Health to facilitate free testing this week.

The city will be hosting free drive-thru testing starting Tuesday, May 19th through Thursday, May 21st from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. in the parking lot of Charlie Daniels Park, which is located 1075 Charlie Daniels Parkway.
