For Harvey County Now
The WellHealth COVID-19 drive-through testing site will change locations later this week, moving to the parking lot of the Chisholm Trail Center, 601 SE 36th St. in Newton.
The testing site will remain at its current location, Newton High School, through Dec. 30. It will open for testing at the Chisholm Trail Center beginning Thursday, Dec. 31, at 11 a.m. The site will maintain its regular hours of Mondays through Saturdays from 9 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. However, the site will be closed Jan. 1 for the New Year’s Day holiday.
Appointments are recommended and encouraged to aid scheduling. However, those without appointments can be tested. Appointments can be scheduled through WellHealth’s website, www.gogettested.com.
Testing is open to all individuals, regardless of county of residence. The site will test symptomatic and asymptomatic individuals. Testing will be filed through an insurance provider, if available, but is free to those who do not have insurance.
WellHealth conducts saliva-based testing. Individuals can remain in their vehicle throughout the
testing process. Results are expected within 48 to 96 hours after testing, with notification of results sent by WellHealth to the individual through SMS or email.
The testing site is a partnership between WellHealth and the Kansas Department of Health and Environment.
