Testgiving Drive-Thru Event
The Clark County Combined Health District will give away free rapid antigen tests during a “testgiving” drive-thru event from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. today at 529 E. Home Road. Participants will receive a supply of COVID tests for themselves and everyone in their household.
Confirming a COVID infection early and following isolation recommendations can also help reduce community spread of the virus. Individuals can help limit the spread of COVID-19 by taking an at-home test as soon as they feel sick. At-home tests provide results in minutes compared to the days that a lab test can take, which can help keep people at work and kids in school.

Cedarville University’s newest ensemble, the Madrigal Choir, will perform its first off-campus performance at 7 p.m. on Saturday at Covenant Presbyterian Church in Springfield. This performance is free and open to the public.
Austin Jaquith, professor of music theory and composition at Cedarville, is the director of the Madrigal Choir. Madrigals were a common form of composition in the Renaissance era, characterized by tight, five-part harmonies. Madrigal choirs sing a cappella, which requires accuracy from the performers. The smaller ensemble consists of around 20 members.
