“The virus is still present in our communities, which is evident from the daily count of COVID-19 cases statewide,” Acting Secretary of Health, Allison Beam, said. “We encourage anyone who feels they need or want a test to take advantage of any of the COVID-19 testing clinics if they think they have been exposed to COVID-19.”
Up to 450 people can be tested per day with the mid-nasal passage swab PCR tests. Testing is on a first-come, first-serve basis and it is completely free. No appointments are necessary.
