Hancock County Health System (HCHS) has become proactive in the fight against the pandemic by offering COVID-19 testing to area residents on a drive thru basis. The identification of an infected person is the first step in preventing the spread of the disease so the hospital is currently offering drive thru testing at the Britt location and will be offering it shortly in Garner.
Hancock County Emergency Management Coordinator Andy Buffington is very pleased by this local development.
Hancock County Public Health Director Chelcee Schleuger explained that the process to get tested is simple.
The testing program is set up for those who have minor symptoms or those who have been exposed to someone who has COVID-19, according to Scheulger.
The testing process is simple and quick.
