APRI (AIDS Project Rhode Island) is offering free HIV and Hep C testing for Newport-area residents. Testing happens on the second and third Thursday of each month (12-2 pm on the second Thurs, and 3-5 pm on the third). This schedule is the same for every month. Testing is located at The MLK Center on 20 Dr. Marcus Wheatland Blvd, Newport. For more information check out

They are also offering free at-home COVID-19 rapid tests to clients who request one via in-person or at-home testing. They have a limited number of COVID-19 tests,
