As the spread of COVID-19 continues, the St. Louis County Department of Public Health said Friday that “getting tested has never been more important.”
More than 225,000 COVID-19 tests have been conducted so far in St. Louis County.
“Testing is crucial to efforts to contain the spread of the virus and is a major factor in understanding the patterns of its spread,” the health department said. “This is how to prevent others from catching it.“
The county will hold a pop-up drive-thru testing site Saturday and Sunday in Affton.
As additional information is learned about this virus, it is becoming more clear that asymptomatic spread is a key factor. Health experts encourage anyone who has or has had close contact with the public to get a test – even if they don’t have symptoms and haven’t had direct contact with someone who was positive. Testing is available to anyone who requests it in St. Louis County.

Drive-thru testing is done five days a week at the following DPH clinics:
