Drive-thru COVID-19 testing on June 26 aims to stop the chain of coronavirus transmission in Johnson County

Anyone age 18 and older who lives or works in Johnson County, Kansas can get a free COVID-19 test on Friday, June 26 from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. (or until supplies run out) at the United Methodist Church of the Resurrection, 13720 Roe Ave. in Leawood.

The drive-thru testing clinic will operate on a first-come, first-served basis for anyone with or without symptoms of COVID-19. Traffic should enter the testing clinic off of Roe Avenue, just south of 135th Street, and follow the signs. 

Those getting tested should remain in their vehicles with the windows rolled up until it's time for their test. Testing involves using a swab to take a sample from the back of the nose. No pets, please. This is not antibody testing. 

More information about the county's COVID-19 response can be found at www.jocogov.org/coronavirus.
