In a June 18 story about covid-19 numbers in the county, the newspaper incorrectly reported that covid-19 testing is available at the Freeman Anderson Clinic.
Freeman Health System does offer covid-19 testing and people should start by calling the covid-19 Call Center.
Callers who meet the criteria can qualify to get a covid-19 test and are scheduled to get that at the drive-thru test site on the Freeman West Campus in Joplin (and will be directed as to exactly where that is by the Call Center).
The call center operates from 8 a.m. to noon and 12:30 p.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday.
Drive-thru testing is done at 1221 McIntosh Circle Monday through Thursday from 9 a.m. to 11:20 a.m. and 1 p.m. to 2:20 p.m. Then on Friday from 9 a.m. to 11:20 a.m. All are by appointment.
