Two new free COVID-19 community testing sites are opening in Reno County this Friday, December 18. WellHealth was chosen to administer the tests as part of the Governor’s statewide testing initiative.

The parking lot south of the Kansas Cosmosphere, 1100 N Plum St, Hutchinson, will be one site. Those seeking tests are asked to enter from the Plum Street entrance. 

The second site will be located at Simply Good Overstocks, 401 N Main St, South Hutchinson. Both sites will be open from 8 a.m. to 5:30 p.m., Monday through Saturday. There will be no testing on December 24, 25 or January 1.  

“We are very excited to have this additional resource for our community members,” said Reno County Health Department Assistant Director Megan Hammersmith. “Testing is still the best way to catch the virus and limit the community spread.” Because of the two new sites, the Reno County Health Department has suspended further testing at the fairground’s location.  

WellHealth’s testing is open to all Kansas residents, as well as symptomatic or asymptomatic individuals. Insurance is not required. The testing itself is saliva based and results can be expected within 48-96 hours after testing with results being sent either through text or email. 

Appointments are encouraged, but not required, and can be made through the website
