A new resource will help bring coronavirus tests to underserved communities.


Governor Laura Kelly says the Kansas Department of Health and Environment has developed a Mobile Testing Unit for that purpose. The van is outfitted with lab-sampling equipment that can travel to different locations upon request. The testing is offered at no cost, either to the individuals needing tests or to the community.

The testing unit will collect samples at each site and then send them to the KDHE lab for processing. The local health department or health organization will have results available within two days.

Neither the governor's office nor KDHE have given the current schedule, but the Mobile Testing Unit is tentatively scheduled through mid-July.
