“False Positives” spray painted on the side of a Walgreens’ COVID testing site


LEXINGTON, Ky. (WTVQ) – A coronavirus testing site in Lexington was hit by graffiti vandals Saturday night or early Sunday morning. It happened at the Walgreens on Executive Drive of Winchester Road in Hamburg.

It was reported Sunday morning. The Health Department is concerned this could deter people from getting tested.

Phrases like “Plandemic” and “False Positives” were spray-painted on the side of the building.

“I can’t speak for what’s in the hearts and minds of everyone out there, but we hope this doesn’t keep anyone who wants to get tested from getting tested. The information that has been on the side of the building through the vandalism is not accurate. We know of no issues at this testing site,” Health Department spokesperson Kevin Hall said of the motivation behind the vandals and whether the testing has had any problems.

Testing is still happening at the Walgreens by appointment.
