It’s a one day opportunity for senior citizens in Baker wanting to get tested for the coronavirus and although pre-registration has come and gone, there’s still a chance to get tested.

Citizens 60 years and older, residents of Baker and pre-registered will get the first dibs on getting tested for the coronavirus Tuesday.

The city is only providing access to testing and Southeast Community Health Systems will conduct testing.

Residents are asked to bring their ID and that’ll help verify registration, age and address.

The testing process can be delayed if you don’t have your ID or your pre-registration packet is incomplete.

Luckily if you did not pre-register, you can still be tested while supplies last, but you will have to register and those who completed their packet will be tested first.

This process is drive-thru only so residents are asked to follow directions given by the onsite volunteers so the process can run smoothly.

Testing will be from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. in the parking lot of Advantage Charter School (14740 Plank Rd).
