Clark County has five locations where residents can get tested for COVID-19, according to the Clark County Combined Health District.
The CCCHD, in partnership with the City of Springfield, hosted three COVID-19 pop-up testing clinics last month. At the clincs, 2,278 people were tested.
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.
