HIV Testing

Free HIV testing is available at the Health Department.  Oral samples are collected on site with results being available within 20-30 minutes. (Any positive results require a confirmatory blood test.)  Client confidentiality is maintained throughout the process.  HIV pre and post counseling is offered by the Public Health Nurses.  Parental permission is not required for minors. Results are given face-to-face, and only to the person tested.
