Franklin, Tenn. – The Williamson County Emergency Management Agency (WCEMA) has published a Spanish language resource page for those seeking more information about COVID-19 testing, free mask distribution sites, the Williamson County Declaration (face covering requirement), and links to pertinent COVID-19 health guidelines and recommendations. These resources are accessible through the Williamson County Coronavirus update page at http://www.williamsonready.org/293/Recursos-e-informacin-en-espaol-sobre-CO.

A Spanish language video announcement can also be found on the Williamson County Television Youtube page at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aCCX7ApjddA

“Getting the right information to the right people at the right time is an incredibly large part of achieving community success during emergencies,” says WCEMA External Affairs Officer Hannah Bleam. “We hope our community will share the links and resources on this page with those that need it. Every action makes a difference in getting this information to the right people.”

The Williamson County Health Department (WCHD) also continues to provide free COVID-19 drive-through testing and mask distribution for the community at the Williamson County Agricultural Center, Monday through Friday from 8:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.

Test results are being returned within 2-3 days; however, it can take longer when a high volume of testing is completed in the area. Those awaiting results will be alerted by a representative of the Tennessee Department of Health.  Individuals are never asked to provide their social security number or financial data to receive their results.

The City of Fairview is hosting a free drive-through mask distribution event at Fairview City Hall, 7100 City Center Circle on Friday, August 14th from 9 a.m. to 11:00 a.m. Masks will be distributed on a first come, first serve basis.
