LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- A COVID-19 testing event is taking place in west Louisville this week ahead of the holidays. 

Louisville Metro Councilwoman Donna Purvis is sponsoring the drive-thru testing Tuesday at Lannan Park, which is on 26th Street and Northwestern Parkway.  The testing will take place from 10 a.m. until 3 p.m. 

Anyone wishing to be tested is asked to bring an ID and a health insurance card. If you don't have health insurance, you can still be tested.

Purvis says results should be available within 48 hours of the saliva test.
