Sedgwick County moves to walk-in testing at Extension


Instead of a drive-through site for COVID-19 testing, the Sedgwick County Health Department now offers no-cost, walk-in testing at the K-State Research and Extension Center, 7001 W. 21st Street N.
Walk-ins are welcome from 8:30 to 11:30 a.m. and 12:30 to 4 p.m., Monday through Friday. Follow the signs to the southern entrance facing 21st street.
There is no longer a drive-through sampling site at 620 N Edgemoor St.
At the Extension Center sampling site, the health department will take a nasal, oral, or saliva sample and send it to a lab for COVID-19 PCR testing. Residents may receive their results in four to six days. The results of the virus test show whether a person has a current infection. This is not an antibody test.
Call 316-660-1022 if you have questions about COVID-19.
Health officials remind you to wear masks, social distance, and practoce good hand hygiene. In addition, it is strongly recommended to stay home for the holidays.
