Free COVID-19 testing Wednesday in Rolla

The Phelps-Maries County Health Department reports a COVID-19 community testing event is scheduled for Wednesday, Sept. 30, from 2 to 7 p.m. at Lions Club Den and Park in Rolla.

This PCR test will require the swab to only be placed about a half inch inside the nose (anterior nare) to determine if there is an active infection with SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19. This is not an antigen or antibody test.

These are free COVID-19 tests. You do not have to show symptoms, and you do not have to reside in the county where the event is being held.
