LIMA — A pop-up COVID-19 testing site will be held from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Monday, Dec. 7 at the University of Northwestern Ohio’s Event Center, 1450 N. Cable Road, Lima.
Anyone can get a no-cost test, but please bring insurance information if you have it. No appointment or doctor’s order is needed. Testing is available to anyone, not just Putnam County residents. Anyone 17 and under will need signed consent from a parent or guardian, and children must be 2 or older to test. Testing quantities may be limited.
Results should be available within two to three days but may take longer. People should stay home if they have COVID-19 symptoms or have been exposed to the virus. Monitor your health, and call your healthcare provider if symptoms develop or worsen.
People with positive tests will be notified by a St. Rita’s team member, followed by a health department employee to discuss contact tracing. People with negative tests won’t be notified but can check their results through a web portal.
