Public Health Director Andrea Brown announced some great news for Bourbon County. The Bourbon County Health Department is going to become a Drive-Thru COVID-19 testing site! The BCHD will be partnering with the state Department of Public Health, Gravity Lab, and UPS to provide the service in Bourbon County.
The testing will be free to anyone 18 years of age and older.
You can be tested regardless of whether or not you have any of the identified symptoms.that are linked to the virus.
The Health Department’s resources are limited so they will be offering the testing two days a week for two hours for a minimum of four weeks. They will of course evaluate the program at the end of the four weeks to determine if they need to expand the service. Andrea and her staff want to offer this service for the community to allow anyone to have access to testing without restrictions or barriers.
It is also an important part of Kentucky’s “Reopen Ky” plan to increase testing availability to all citizens across the state.
This will be Drive-Thru testing only and will be administered by appointment only. Call 859-987-1915 or visit www.bourboncohd.org.
The Bourbon County Health Department will offer drive through testing Tuesdays and Thursdays from 10 a.m. until Noon.
