Mission #19: Testing, 1, 2, 3

As we turn back to the core message to keep Virginia safe, let’s put our focus on testing. In the process, we may encounter family members or peers still undecided on the vaccine, so let's provide a solution-oriented answer. Testing! Testing before large gatherings + after can prevent the spread of the COVID-19 virus in our communities. Dive into Mission 19 to help get the word out!

🚀 Keep Virginia safe by encouraging testing + sharing testing facts.
