The Nebraska State Health Department, Memorial Community Hospital & Health System, and Three Rivers Public Health Department (3RPHD) are working together to bring more testing to Washington County.

Testing will be offered on Tuesday, June 9, from 8-10 a.m. and on Friday, June 12, from 4-6 p.m. at Memorial Community Hospital and Health System in Blair.

There is no charge to be tested through this process. This is not an antibody test. Testing is available for any Nebraska resident; minors need to be accompanied by a parent or guardian.

Increased COVID-19 testing is an important piece to finding the virus and keeping people, families, and communities safe from disease spread and 3RPHD is encouraging more individuals to seek testing.
