BOWLING GREEN, Ohio — COVID-19 testing will soon be available at the Wood County Community Health Center on Tuesday, June 30.
Testing will be available for people of all ages, including those without symptoms and non Wood County residents. No physician order is required nor will there be an out of pocket cost.
The testing will take place in health center's parking lot located 1840 east Gypsy Lane Road in Bowling Green, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.
The tests will be self-administered and patients will remain in their car. The tests are designed to detect active COVID-19 infection. These tests are not antibody tests.
This pop-up testing is a result of a partnership between the health center and the Ohio National Guard.
"The COVID-19 Minority Health Strike Force has worked with local partners to create pop-up testing sites in communities where access to testing may be limited. By joining with the Ohio National Guard and other local partners, we can provide tests to any Ohioan who wants one. With better understanding of COVID-19 through increased testing, we'll be better able to prevent its spread," said Ohio Gov. Mike DeWine.
Anyone interested in getting tested is encouraged to call the health center at 419-354-9049 to register and schedule an appointment Monday through Thursday from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. or Friday from 8:30 a.m. to 2 p.m.
