Clark County Health Department ends COVID-19 testing

County Health Officer Dr. Eric Yazel said they have no other choice because funding has dried up.

LOUISVILLE, Ky. — The Clark County Health Department is suspending COVID-19 testing at its office.

County Health Officer Dr. Eric Yazel said they have no other choice because funding has dried up.

The department can go after other funding sources, but they are not in a rush.

Yazel said demand for testing has dropped in recent months.

“We were only doing about 15 a day. I do think we’ll see an upswing in testing as we get closer to our kids coming back to school, so we may re-up at that point,” he said.

Free at-home tests are still available from the federal government.

You can also order up to 8 free tests a month from CVS pharmacies, you just need your insurance card.
