FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: July 8, 2020
Missouri residents in the Kansas City area who want to be tested for COVID-19 can do so at no cost during a three-day testing event. The testing was initially offered to restaurant employees but is now open to any Missouri resident who is seven years or older.
Staff from the KCMO Health Department and the Missouri Department of Health and Senior Services will be at the Homefield Sports Facility, 5300 Bannister Rd., from 7 a.m. until 7 p.m., July 13-15 to administer up to 2,000 COVID-19 tests.
Appointments are required. Residents of Missouri can secure an appointment by registering online or by calling 877-435-8411. Any extra appointment times will be opened to others outside the restaurant industry.
Under Kansas City, Missouri, Mayor Quinton Lucas’ most recent order, masks must be worn inside businesses if six-feet distance cannot be maintained.
