MASS TESTING IN LINDSBORG - FREE COVID-19 TESTING
The City of Lindsborg will be providing Free COVID19 Testing for asymptomatic and pre symptomatic patrons in Lindsborg at the J.O. Sundstrom Conference Center (102 N. Main) on Thursday, December 17th, from 4:00 PM – 7:00 PM, Sunday, December 20th from 4:00 PM – 7:00 PM, and Monday, December 21st from 7:00 AM – 12:00 PM.
According to the CDC, there is:
“Growing evidence of transmission risk from infected people without symptoms (asymptomatic) or before the onset of recognized symptoms (presymptomatic)."
The purpose of mass testing is to identify individuals in our community who do not have COVID-19 symptoms but do in fact have the highly contagious disease. If we can identify these individuals and they then isolate, we can reduce the spread of COVID-19 in our community. This is important because the long-term effects of COVID-19 infection are not well understood. Some survivors report months-long severe effects, including reduced intellectual capacity, loss of smell, fatigue, and breathing difficulties. Additionally, at this time, some 280,000 Americans have died of COVID-19. For comparison, in 2019, 38,000 Americans died in car accidents.
This testing is not intended for individuals who are exhibiting symptoms of COVID-19 or have tested positive for COVID in the last 90 days. People exhibiting symptoms of COVID-19 should call their health provider for testing.
