Community COVID testing comes to Cassville
The Barry County Health Department, in cooperation with the Cassville School District, Missouri Department of Health and Human Services, and the Missouri National Guard, are hosting a free COVID-19 (coronavirus) community testing site for Missouri residents.
Testing will be done at Cassville High School, located at 1825 State Hwy Y in Cassville, from 7 a.m. to 3 p.m. on June 29.
To accommodate as many persons as possible while maintaining physical distancing, this will be a drive through testing site. Participants will have a scheduled time for their test and, upon arrival, will not have to leave their vehicle during the test. People may register online at at https://health.mo.gov/communitytest or by calling 877-435-8411.
Results will be provided to individuals typically within 2-3 days. The site will conduct the nasal swab tests that detect active COVID-19 virus.
Barry County Health Department Administrator Roger Brock said this testing site is an important part of the Show Me Strong Recovery Plan for Missouri.
“Expanded testing capacity and volume is the first pillar in the COVID-19 Recovery plan,” he said. “This is an important step in better understanding the disease spread in our community.”
Residents who cannot attend this testing site may register for any of the other community testing sites by going to https://health.mo.gov/communitytest or by calling 877-435-8411.
