Springfield-Greene County Health Department Launches COVID-19 Testing Opportunities Map

With the need for COVID-19 testing in high demand, the Springfield-Greene County Health Department is launching an interactive map that details testing locations throughout the community.

Here’s information on the map released by health officials Tuesday through a press release:

Like the Find-a-Vaccine map launched by the Health Department in June 2021, this map will allow people to find the testing opportunity that works best for them. Those who wish to be tested at a community event, healthcare clinic, or pharmacy will now be able to see opportunities closest to them by utilizing the map, as well as view locations which are accepting walk-ins. Users may also filter by test type.

The COVID-19 Testing Map is available at COVIDTesting417.com. The testing map is currently limited to testing opportunities in Greene County. 

COVID-19 testing has been in high demand across the country given the recent surge in cases. Getting tested when experiencing symptoms and after potential exposure is an important tool in minimizing spread among the community.

As of January 10, the 7-day rolling average of COVID-19 has hit an all-time high of 374.7 cases. The Health Department encourages everyone in Springfield-Greene County to choose vaccination and get tested. If you are experiencing COVID-19 symptoms and unable to get tested, you should still isolate until symptoms have resolved and reach out to a health care provider for guidance.
