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 Sunday, 6,106 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.
