WASHINGTON (AP) - D.C. Mayor Vincent Gray is taking an HIV test to show his support for National HIV Testing Day.

Gray says he will get tested Monday at the opening of a newly expanded and renovated primary care center.

The center, run by Bread for the City, is on 7th Street northwest.

HIV and AIDS remains a big issue in the city. About 3 percent of the city's population over the age of 12 has HIV or AIDS.
