MU Health to adjust hours at Keene Street COVID-19 testing site
MU Health Care is changing the hours at its COVID-19 testing site on Keene Street beginning Monday because of a decrease in demand for testing.
The testing site, which is located at 404 N. Keene St. inside the Women's Hospital, will operate from 8 a.m. to noon every day beginning Monday.
Currently, the site operates from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday and 8 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. on weekends.
Testing at this location is open for those with known exposure to the virus, those with mild symptoms and those who need a test in order to travel. An appointment is not required and testing is free, but people who are insured should bring proof of insurance.
Several options are available for at-home COVID-19 tests. Private health insurance companies cover the cost of at-home test kits, and many major retail stores such as Walgreens, CVS and Hy-Vee carry test kits.
