As a result of the disease’s presence in the immediate area, the Health Department is offering coronavirus tests, Public Information Officer Amanda Goodhard said.
Goodhard said that anyone with breathing conditions and other flu-like symptoms common with COVID-19 should first consult with their physician, who can probably administer a coronavirus test.
If that isn’t an option, testing can be done at the Health Department’s office at 266 Joyce Lane in Winchester, she said.
As of Friday, 13,053 tests administered in Franklin County showed negative coronavirus results.
Goodhard said anyone wishing to access the Health Department should call 931-967-3826 for further information. Testing is now being conducted from 8:30-10:30 a.m. Monday through Friday.
Goodhard said that strict social-distancing practices are in place due to the coronavirus threat.
