The second clinic took place on July 15th at Perrin Woods Elementary School where 906 people were tested. Of those, 4.1% were found to be positive for the virus.
The final clinic, which was a drive-thru, was held in the parking lot of the Burnett Plaza on July 22. A total of 897 people were tested and 2.1% were found to be positive.
All individuals who tested positive were contacted by phone and all necessary contact tracing was completed, according to the CCCHD. Those who tested negative received either a text message or call based on their preference selected at testing registration.
With their free clinics completed, the CCCHD is now focused on “reassessing its testing procedures to ensure results will be given in a timely manner and are working with partners to provide additional testing clinics in the near,” a statement from the CCCHD said.
