RC&D Support of the Alabama Department of Public Health's COVID-19 Drive Through Testing
Susan Terrell - Assistant Administrator of the Southwest District at ADPH, Chad Kent - Southwest District Administrator at ADPH, Gulf Coast RC&D Chairman - Raymond Wiggins, Representative Alan Baker, Lead nurse - Marcia Allen, Jill Morris - Gulf Coast RC&D Programs Manager, and Charles Ramsey - Gulf Coast RC&D Executive Director
The Alabama Association of RC&D is pleased to announce its sponsorship for the Alabama Department of Public Health's (ADPH) summer COVID-19 Mobile Testing Program.
The Alabama Department of Public Health will continue to offer and expand testing in 67 counties during the hot summer months. Preparation for summer COVID-19 testing creates unique challenges in our extremely warm Alabama summer temperatures. For nursing staff, COVID-19 testing requires them to wear personal protective equipment that is extremely hot. Many county health department staff will need fans and generators, tents and tent bolts, tables, extension cords, and cooling/hydration stations for nurses who will be wearing heavy personal protective equipment.
State health officer, Dr. Scott Harris gave his appreciation of RC&D helping to sponsor the program, easing the financial burden of this program, going into each county across the state.
Funding for this project was made available through the efforts of Representative Alan Baker and Senator Greg Albritton. Gulf Coast RC&D Chairman, Raymond Wiggins, would like to extend his appreciation to these legislators for their support and advocacy of the RC&D program.
The RC&D Association is dedicated to protecting, enhancing, and developing the state's natural and human resources, which depends on the leadership abilities and unique skills within communities it serves. The RC&D Councils in Alabama are proud of their accomplishments, but there is much yet that can be done to make Alabama communities a better place to live.
We would love to have you visit soon!
