Fordland Clinic is pleased to announce that they will be offering an evening drive-thru COVID-19 (the disease caused by the novel coronavirus) testing at no cost. This event, to be held on Thursday, August 13th, is open to anyone, regardless of county of residency. For this testing, presence of symptoms is not required, and a doctor’s order is not needed. Pre-registration, however, is required. Fordland Clinic will be supported by a collaborative group of Webster County healthcare providers.

Those wishing to be tested should bring healthcare insurance information to the event. If you are not covered by insurance, or if insurance only covers part of the cost of the testing, there will be no cost to the person being tested.

Community sampling, like that being performed in Webster County, gives healthcare providers and the Webster County Health Unit, a better sense of COVID-19 prevalence in a given area, which will help guide the response and ease uncertainty for Missourians. If prevalence is low, this will help reassure citizens that it is safe to begin re-engaging in the community and returning to somewhat normal operations. If prevalence is higher, quick and proactive steps will be taken to keep the virus from spreading further in the community.

This event will offer only PCR testing, which is conducted by nasal swab and tests for current infection.

Testing will be performed on Thursday, August 13th from 6:00-8:00 pm at the Fordland Clinic. The address for the event is 1059 Barton Drive in Fordland. Appointments for testing are required for this event. A time slot can be scheduled by calling Fordland Clinic at 417-767-2273. Minors must be accompanied by a parent or guardian.

Collaborative partners in the Webster County Mobile Testing Unit are Fordland Clinic, CoxHealth / Cox EMS, Jordan Valley Community Health Center – Marshfield, Marshfield Fire Department, Mercy, OCH Wellpointe Family Medical Clinic, and the Webster County Health Unit.
