32 THE VALLEY APRIL 9-15, 2020 | VALLEY BREEZE | NORTH SMITHFIELD BLACKSTONE WOONSOCKET EDITION ed 20 cases of COVID-19 among Woonsocket residents. Last Friday, April 3, Tim Brown, director of marketing and com- munications at Athena Health Care Systems, which owns Oakland Grove, said in an email the facil- ity is continuing to follow the guidance of the RIDOH and Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. "We will continue to take all pos- sible steps to protect the health and safety of our residents and encourage all our family members to reach out to us with any ques- tions they may have," he said. "We appreciate the support our staff and residents have received since COVID-19 was introduced into our center and ask that our community continues to keep the Oakland Grove Health Care Center community in their thoughts and prayers." This is a developing story. For the most recent information, visit www.valley- . OAKLAND GROVE From Page 5 New drive-through COVID-19 testing center at Twin River LINCOLN – Gov. Gina Raimondo announced Monday that Rhode Island has formed a partner- ship with CVS Health to make free, rapid COVID-19 tests available to all Rhode Islanders. Tests using the new Abbott ID NOW system will now be provided by appointment at a new drive-through testing site at Twin River casino in Lincoln. This testing site will be able to perform approximately 1,000 tests per day, doubling Rhode Island's current testing capacity. The site will be utilizing licensed health care providers from MinuteClinic, CVS's retail medical clinic, to oversee the testing at no cost to patients. The Abbott ID NOW COVID-19 test is the fastest available molecu- lar point-of-care test. The test can deliver positive results in as little as five minutes and negative results in as little as 13 minutes, states a release. As Rhode Island has dramati- cally ramped up its testing capacity, Raimondo announced last week that tests are now available for all Rhode Islanders, rather than being reserved for health workers. With the Twin River testing location coming online, the state will be per- forming approximately 2,000 tests per day. Anyone looking to receive a test at this site can sign up at 19-testing .
