COVID-19 testing comes to Warren County

BOWLING GREEN, Ky. – In the first of what was originally scheduled to be a three-day testing event, Kroger Health began testing area residents for the COVID-19 coronavirus at South Warren High School.

Testing started at 8:30 Tuesday morning and ran until 5:30 Tuesday evening. Drive-through testing was provided by appointment only and each test took about 10 minutes to complete, including filling out the paperwork. More than two hundred eighty tests were performed on the first day.

Test results are expected to be received in as little as 48 hours and those getting tested did not have to pay for the test.

An additional day of testing has been added to the schedule, for Friday, and all the available appointments for that date have already been taken.
