In order to increase Covid-19 testing for Cowley County and the surrounding area the State of Kansas’ Department of Health and Environment is contracting with Well-Health to provide free, expanded testing opportunities throughout the state.
Testing is free of charge and does not require insurance or identification. Testing is open to all, regardless of medical necessity (i.e., the presence of Covid-19 symptoms or close contact with someone who has Covid-19).
In Cowley County, testing will begin on January 2nd, 2021 and will continue each Saturday through January. Testing will be made available at the Church of God in Arkansas City (403 West Kansas) from 10:00 a.m. until 4:00 p.m. Appointments can be made at GoGetTested.com/Kansas, though no appointment is required to receive a test. Do not eat, drink, or use tobacco for 30 minutes prior to receiving a test. Well-Health conducts saliva-based PCR testing that checks for active virus.
Test results will be available within 48-96 hours. Patients will be notified via email or text when their results are available. Please be aware that this testing is not a part of the testing conducted by the City-Cowley County Health Department. The Health Department will be informed of test results after the fact and they cannot provide results or other documentation regarding this testing. For questions, please call 1-877-837-8461 or email [email protected].
