169 Tested Friday at the Laclede County Covid-19 drive-thru

169 people were tested for the COVID-19 virus on Friday in Lebanon. Laclede County Health Department Administrator, Charla Baker, was pleased with the turnout……….

Baker is hoping that they receive 169 negative test results, but the spread of COVID-19 in Laclede County has been on the upswing recently…….

Baker says individuals that were tested today should have their results back in a few days

Baker says Laclede County could hold another testing clinic if there is a spike in cases in the future………

The clinic that was conducted on Friday was free to the public, and participants were not required to have a doctor’s order to receive a test. The testing clinic will help identify those in the community that might be asymptomatic spreaders. Many of those who have been diagnosed with COVID-19 did not even know they were sick.
