    Due to complexities of large-group testing with COVID-19 restrictions, AHS will not be hosting ACT testing as a national site for June or July 2020.  Our goal is to offer testing again to North Alabama beginning in September.  Our apologies for any inconveniences caused by ACT leaving AHS as an option under registration for this summer.

    Please contact ACT for alternate testing sites for June and July.
