The Department of Health and Senior Services is partnering with local health departments and the National Guard to offer free COVID 19 testing sites in certain locations across the state. Testing will take place in Springfield at the Ozark Empire Fairgrounds this Thursday from 9 am to 7 pm and Friday from 7 am to 4 pm. Testing will be at the Webster County Fairgrounds in Marshfield on Monday, December 7th from noon to 6 pm, and in Clinton at the Henry County Fairgrounds on December 8th from noon to 6 pm. The test is done with a nasal swap to determine if there is active infection with covid 19. It is not an antigen or antibody test. Additional locations are being scheduled on a regular basis.
