Centre County Free Testing Center Stays Open

Free COVID-19 testing will continue in Centre County, at least for another Month.

On Tuesday Morning, the funding for the testing site to remain open was approved. The COVID Testing Center at 1155 Benner Pike was slated to close at the end of this week. Tuesday, the Centre County Commissioners approved extending the contract with the testing service of AMI Healthcare thorough the end of March.

Centre Co. Administrator Margaret Gray saying: “So with another extension we’ll change contract from 300 tests a day to 200 a day at cost of $66,000 a week.” The County will continue to use Cares Act COVID Relief Grant money to pay for the testing service, especially with a recent increase in daily COVID cases reported in Centre County. Eventually, its hoped more Vaccinations will decrease the need for testing.

The free COVID Test Clinic is open Tuesdays through Saturdays, 10 to 7 each day. You don’t need an appointment, but will be asked for Photo ID to be tested. Since the Clinic first opened last year, more than 8,000 people have been tested.
