FAIRBORN, Ohio (WDTN) – People needing to get tested for COVID can go to a drive-thru event at the Wright State University Nutter Center February 1.
The university is partnering with Public Health – Dayton & Montgomery County and Greene County Public Health to offer the COVID-19 testing event on Tuesday, February 1 from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Testing is limited to people ages 10 and older who are experiencing symptoms or who have had a known exposure to someone who tested positive for COVID-19.
Nasal swab PCR tests will be administered. Results will be available in 24 to 48 hours. A doctor’s note is not needed to get tested.
Appointments are required and can be made here. Participants are asked to bring their Eventbrite ticket, an ID and a completed information form, available at phdmc.org, to help speed up the process. People should arrive and stay in their vehicles throughout the testing process.
“Testing plays a key role in our efforts to identify infected individuals and alleviate some of the burden on our local health care facilities,” Melissa Howell, Greene County health commissioner, said.
