A COVID-19 testing site hosted by the Christian County Emergency Management is closing its facility. Organizers say the demand for the site has diminished with so many other testing sites opening.
According to a press release, there has been a 20 to 25% “no-show” rate and weather is now playing a part.
Organizers say they are not sure when or if they will reopen the site. It will depend on if the demand increases and if the facility will have enough staffing.
There are several test sites open in the region through the e-True North Pharmacy System. Some in the Lakes Region and immediate surrounding regions include the Country Mart Pharmacy in Forsyth, Price Cutter Pharmacies in Hollister and Aurora along with Hixson Drug in Ozark.
