Two Free COVID-19 Testing Events Scheduled for Next Week
Do you want piece of mind that those sniffles are just your allergies acting up? Or a cold your kid gifted you? Looking to visit grandma but want to make sure you don't have the coronavirus? Well your in luck Compass Health Network is offering free COVID-19 screenings next week in Windsor and Warrensburg.
Testing in Windsor is taking place at Royal Oak Hospital, 307 N. Main, from 1:00 PM - 5:30 PM CDT.
Testing in Warrensburg is happening at Compass Health Network, 616 Burkrath Road, from 9:00 AM - 1:00 PM CDT.
Screenings at both locations are free but do require registration and an appointment. You can register for the Windsor event here. And the Warrensburg event here.
Trying to figure out if you're dealing with a cold, the flu, allergies or COVID-19 can be difficult. And I suppose you could go running to your doctor for a coronavirus test every time you get the sniffles. But yeah, I don't think many of us are going to do that all the time. I mean on top of the inconvenience no one wants that swab stuck up their nose halfway to their brain.
I think the best way to sort of navigate the cold, flu, COVID-19, allergies question is to look at the various charts that have been put out that list the different symptoms. Business Insider has a comprehensive symptoms chart comparing the symptoms of all the illnesses here.
And of course, if someone close to you comes down with COVID-19 it's probably a good idea to go get tested and keep an eye on how you feel.
