(RILEY COUNTY, KS – December 15, 2020) Additional free COVID-19 testing will be available in Riley County starting Friday, December 18. The Kansas Department of Health and Environment has partnered with WellHealth to offer free, drive-through COVID-19 testing every day through the end of the year, except Sundays and holidays.

WellHealth conducts saliva-based PCR testing that checks for active virus. Results are expected within 48-96 hours after testing, and notification will be sent by WellHealth to the individual through text or email.

Anyone can participate and appointments are encouraged to help streamline the process. However, those without appointments can still be tested.
