Mobile COVID-19 Testing Collaborative
(COLUMBIA, MO) - Monday, May 4, 2020, will mark the beginning of a collaborative COVID-19 testing program between Columbia/Boone County Public Health and Human Services (PHHS), Harry S. Truman Memorial Veterans' Hospital (VA), MU Health Care and Boone Hospital. The goal is to increase testing for individuals that currently are not able to access existing testing sites (like the current Columbia drive-thru testing sites) as well as more rural settings and those at higher risk like congregate settings. Once established, this joint initiative will expand to additional surrounding areas. This mobile testing collaborative will conduct testing in the event of any symptom(s) of acute respiratory infection (fever, new cough, new shortness of breath, new myalgias, chills, headache, sore throat, new loss of taste or smell). No other criteria will be needed for testing at these events.
