BRANSON, Mo. — The DHSS has sent the Missouri National Guard to provide a free drive-through testing site for COVID-19 in Taney County.

This is coming after the county’s rise cases over the last few weeks. Taney County Health Department currently reports that there are 63 confirmed cases of COVID-19, with two deaths, 24 recoveries, and 37 active cases.

“I don’t have a lot of the exact numbers, DHSS kind of handles all of the medical data, but we’re here to provide that for them,” said Captain Andrew Rodenberg, with the Missouri National Guard. “And they did see a need, that’s why we’re here.”

The drive-through site is located in the parking lot next to Cox Branson’s Orthopedics and Neurology building on Cahill Road.

Captain Rodenberg says they tested around 400 people from 7 a.m. to 3 p.m.

You can register on-site or call 877-435-8411 to pre-register. Testing hours for July 1 will be from 7 a.m. -3 p.m. You don’t need symptoms to qualify for free testing.
