Wyandotte County is offering free asymptomatic COVID-19 testing, which was previously limited to people with symptoms or people who had been exposed to the virus.
The Unified Government Public Health Department (UGPHD) collaborated with Vibrant Health, Swope Health, and the Wyandotte County Health Equity Task Force to adjust the testing eligibility. This change comes in response to the most recent testing numbers in Wyandotte County as well as current data on asymptomatic spread of the virus.
“We’ve seen our county’s testing numbers going down, but we still are still one of the communities hardest hit by COVID-19 in the metro. This is a major step forward in our ability to test more members of our Wyandotte County community and get a clearer picture of where and how the virus is spreading,” said Juliann Van Liew, director of the Unified Government Public Health Department.
Residents can get tested regardless of symptoms or exposure to COVID-19 at:
The Unified Government Public Health Department (UGPHD), 619 Ann Ave, Kansas City, KS 66101
This is for people who live or work in Wyandotte County. Please note: the UGPHD may be moving to a new testing site later this fall. More information coming soon.
