The Knox County Health Department is trying to make it easier to learn your HIV status.

In honor of National HIV Testing Day, the health department teamed up with the Helen Ross McNabb Center and Walgreens to offer free HIV testing through Saturday.

The tests will be offered at the Walgreens pharmacies on North Broadway at Woodland Avenue, and Chapman Highway at Moody Avenue. The tests are confidential. A quick oral swab will give reliable results in 20 minutes.

Counseling and referrals are available for anyone who takes a test.

Statistics show 18 percent of Americans with HIV don't know they have it. The CDC recommends that everyone between the ages of 13 and 64 get tested at least once.
