Coronavirus (COVID-19) Update: Free COVID-19 Testing Available in North Missouri By Congressman Sam Graves

Dear Friend,


In the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic, I wanted to take an opportunity to share some information about the Missouri Department of Health and Senior Services’ continued partnership with the Missouri National Guard and local health departments across Missouri to conduct free COVID-19 community testing events.

Testing is completely free and the only requirement to get a test is that you must be a Missouri resident. You don’t have to be a resident of the county where the testing is being conducted or have any symptoms.

Below is a list of upcoming community testing events in North Missouri. There are other events outside of the district that might be easier for some of you to get to. You can register for a testing event and find a complete list of upcoming community testing events at: or by calling 877-435-8411.

It’s critical that we stay healthy and work to keep our economy and schools open. As always, please do not hesitate to reach out to my office with any questions or concerns you might have.
