Jackson County Health Department Relocates COVID-19 Testing Clinic

 

JACKSON COUNTY, MO (Sept. 8, 2021) – In preparation for fall and winter weather, the Jackson County Health Department has relocated its drive-thru COVID-19 testing clinic to the Douglas Municipal Facility in Lee’s Summit (616 NE Douglas St)

The new location, which will be used until the end of the year, will give health department staff shelter during cold temperatures and help prevent cancellations due to weather.

Free COVID-19 testing continues to be offered every Tuesday and Wednesday from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. in the new location. 

Both nasopharyngeal swab and saliva tests, which are used to  detect current COVID-19 infection, are available at this location. These tests can also detect Influenza A and Influenza B infection. 

While making an appointment in advance is strongly encouraged, walk-ins are welcome. Community members can find additional local testing opportunities on the health department’s website.
