MO to Get 120,000 Rapid COVID-19 Tests by the End of This Week

Missouri is getting 120,000 rapid COVID-19 tests by the end of this week.

During a virtual briefing at the Governor’s Mansion in Jefferson City, Governor Parson says nearly two million are expected by the end of the year. Getting the tests to schools and long term care centers will be at the top of the priority list.

The nasal swab tests are not as uncomfortable as other versions and they give results in about 15 minutes.
