Health department closing COVID testing sites

District Health Department #10 (DHD#10) is closing its COVID-19 testing clinics effective Wednesday, April 23, 2023, due to minimal usage.

“While the testing sites may be closing, COVID-19 is not going away,” said DHD#10 Health Officer Kevin Hughes. “It is important that residents continue to take precaution if they have been exposed or are feeling sick. To support our residents, DHD#10 offers COVID-19 at-home testing kits as an additional measure to help keep the infection rates down.”

DHD#10 will continue to supply COVID-19 at-home tests. The test kits are limited at each DHD#10 office and are available on a first come, first served basis. Individuals are asked to take one kit per person, and up to four kits per household. Test kits are also available at most pharmacies. Be sure to call your pharmacy ahead of time, as demand remains high.

When arriving at DHD#10 for a COVID-19 at-home testing kits, do not enter the lobby if you have been exposed or are sick. Please call the local DHD#10 office and someone will bring the testing kits to your vehicle. To find your local DHD#10 office, please follow:
