County Transitions to Walk-In Testing at Extension Center

(Sedgwick County, Kan.) – Instead of a drive-through site for COVID-19 testing, the Sedgwick County Health Department now offers no-cost, walk-in testing at the K-State Research and Extension Center, 7001 W. 21st St. Walk-ins are welcome from 8:30 to 11:30 a.m. and 12:30 to 4 p.m. Monday through Friday. Follow the signs to the southern entrance facing 21st street.

There is no longer a drive-through sampling site at 620 N Edgemoor St.

At the Extension Center sampling site, the Health Department will take a nasal, oral, or saliva sample and send it to a lab for COVID-19 PCR testing. Residents may receive their results in four to six days. The results of the virus test show whether a person has a current infection. This is not an antibody test.

Please call (316) 660-1022 if you have questions about COVID-19.

As a reminder, our community toolbox consists of mask wearing, social distancing, and good hand hygiene. These are the best ways for the community to slow the spread of coronavirus and protect one another. Please, stay home for the holidays.
