KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (WVLT) -- In honor of National HIV Testing Day, the Knox County Health Department is offering free HIV tests.
Monday is National HIV testing Day. HIV is the virus that causes AIDS.
The U.S. Centers For Disease Control recommends all sexually active people to get tested for HIV.
The CDC says one in five people who have HIV are unaware of them having the infection, since it can take a long period of time to develop noticeable symptoms.
Knox County residents can take advantage of the free HIV tests today (Monday) from 8:00am-4:00pm at 140 Dameron Avenue. Walk-ins are welcome and no appointment is required. All tests are confidential.
