“CATE” Comes to Town

Last week, Pennsylvania’s new mobile COVID-19 response unit–Community-Accessible Testing and Education or “CATE”–visited Wilkes-Barre through a partnership of several agencies and companies: Highmark Blue Cross Blue Shield, the Pennsylvania Department of Health, Independence Blue Cross, Latino Connection and the Wright Center for Community Health . CATE offers free information, testing and a bag of useful items for any takers, all free. The Latino Connection specializes in helping companies reach the Latino demographic, but CATE is open to all. CATE is visiting sites across the commonwealth, partnering with FQHCs and other local providers who do the testing at each location. More information is available online at www.CATEmobileunit.com
