SCHD Changing Schedule at E. Harry COVID-19 Testing Location; Closing Drive-Thru Saliva Testing Site

(Sedgwick County, KS) – Starting Feb. 13, Sedgwick County Health Department’s (SCHD) 4115 E. Harry St. testing location will be open for COVID-19 testing on Sundays from 12–5 p.m. The testing site will be open during the week on Mondays, Tuesdays and Thursdays 8 a.m.–5 p.m.; and Wednesdays 8 a.m.–6 p.m. The site will now be closed on Fridays.

“We have noticed a lot of testing demand on Mondays with a drop-off occurring in the latter part of the workweek. Adjusting the schedule to keep open on Sundays adds some needed accessibility for testing over the weekend,” said Adrienne Byrne, Director of SCHD.
