The Ohio Department of Health has launched a series of free COVID-19 testing pop-ups offering no-cost, no-appointment testing to anyone and everyone who wants one.
Gov. Mike DeWine is encouraging people who want a test to get one, even asymptomatic individuals.
"Until now, we have very much had a scarcity mindset because we had a very real scarcity of testing resources, but that mindset needs to change," said DeWine in a release. "Testing is a very important weapon in our arsenal as we continue to wage war against a very real enemy. By understanding who is sick, whether they are showing symptoms or not, we are able to better prevent the spread of the COVID-19."
Cincinnati's pop-up testing site is located at the CityLink Center at 800 Bank St. in the West End and will be operational 10 a.m.-3 p.m. June 16, 17, 18, 23, 24 and 25.
Again, no appointment is necessary and a health care provider or doctor's referral is not needed. Testing is free.
The ODH says, "Pop-up testing sites throughout Ohio are located in under served areas but are open to anyone."
