CHARLESTON, WV (WOWK) — The Kanawha-Charleston Health Department and the Kanawha County Emergency Ambulance Authority have two drive-up COVID-19 testing events planned for next week.
The KCHD and KCEAA will be at Shawnee Sports Complex from 1 p.m. to 8 p.m. Monday, August 3 on One Salango Drive in Dunbar and at Capital High School 1 p.m. to 8 p.m. Thursday, August 6 at 1500 Greenbrier Street in Charleston.
Testing is open to everyone and no appointments are needed, according to the KCHD. Health department officials say they will bill the health insurance of people who have it, and Medicaid will pay for the test for those who do not have health insurance. There are no co-payments, according to the KCHD.

Kanawha-Charleston health officials say the numbers released at this time may not be reflected in the state Bureau for Public Health’s latest update due to the date and time they are sent by the KCHD.
