Cempa Community Care clarifies information that was released by the health department:

“The mobile market is set up on 4th Street behind our building where it is open to the public during the hours of its operation. The market is not located inside our facility or on our property,” said Shannon Stephenson, CEO at Cempa Community Care. “We have partnered with the YMCA Chattanooga Mobile Market for several years and appreciate that they have always taken the best and safest precautions, especially during the COVID-19 pandemic. Only two people are allowed on the mobile unit at a time, and all parties wear a face mask. By adding the extra precaution of having a plexiglass screen in place between the cashier and buyer, we consider this to be an incidence of low-risk exposure, one that our patients should certainly not be overly worried about.”


Free testing is available tomorrow at Orchard Knob Baptist Church from 12 PM until 3 PM.
