Vicksburg will be the site for drive-thru COVID-19 testing twice in the coming weeks.

The free tests will be available at the Warren County Health Department at 807 Monroe St., Thursday, Sept. 10, and Thursday, Sept. 17, from noon to 7 p.m.

Teachers, school staff and school nurses do not need to have any symptoms to be tested, and no appointment is necessary. Free N-95 masks will be available for teachers Sept. 10.

Everyone else will need to be screened before testing to determine the likelihood of COVID-19 infection. An appointment will be made at the time of the screening.

Complete the screening by filling out an online form anytime, or by calling 601-496-7200 Monday thru Saturday from 8 a.m. until 5 p.m.

For other testing locations and more information, visit the Mississippi State Department of Health website.
