Sean Penn and his nonprofit organization, Community Organized Relief Effort, known as CORE, has coronavirus drive-through testing facilities.
The non-profit organization says it is working with various healthcare providers to provide free coronavirus testing to first responders, and low-cost testing to the general public, in eleven cities and counties in California, Georgia, North Carolina, and Illinois.
In Huntington Beach, Orange County, Calif., CORE partnered with Elevated Health to provide molecular polymerase chain reaction (PCR) tests and serological antibody tests for a fee at a drive-thru location in the city of Westminster, reported the OCR.
The coronavirus test kits Elevated Health uses are made in China and were purchased from Georgia-based HealthTrackRx. According to Abinante, they are “FDA authorized, but not FDA approved,” reported the OCR.
