  • COVID-19 Testing Opportunity

    Newton County is part of a continuing effort to increase COVID-19 testing. The Missouri National Guard, in cooperation with the Missouri State Department of Health and Senior Services and local county health departments from across the state will be conducting COVID-19 test clinics in this area. This testing opportunity is for any resident of Missouri, with or without symptoms, and there is NO COST to be tested. You also will not need a Physician order to be tested.

    The schedule in Neosho is as follows:

    Date: Tuesday, July 21
    Location: Rocketdyne Church of Christ, 1111 Rocketdyne Rd, Neosho
    Time: 7:00am-7:00pm

    This will be a drive through test clinic so you won’t have to leave your vehicle. You may register for appointment by visiting https://health.mo.gov/communitytest or you may call the COVID Hotline at 877-435-8411 for assistance in registering.

    The test consists of a PCR nasopharyngeal swab.

    Again, testing is free and open to any Missouri resident. Walk-ins at the site are accepted if appointment slots are available.

    Please contact Larry Bergner, Administrator, Newton County Health Department at (417) 451-3743 for more information.
