Appointment-only drive-thru COVID-19 testing clinic at Shawnee Mission North High School on July 24
July 20, 2020

If you live or work in Johnson County, Kansas, and are age 12 and older, you can make an appointment to be tested for COVID-19 for free on Friday, July 24 from 8-11 a.m. at Shawnee Mission North High School, 7401 Johnson Drive in Overland Park. Children age 12-15 years old must have a parent present in the vehicle to give verbal consent for testing.

Testing is by appointment only for anyone with or without symptoms. Appointments can be scheduled at https://www.jocogov.org/schedule-covid-19-test. Due to the high demand for this testing, appointments will fill up quickly, so residents are encouraged to check the website frequently for cancellations. Those with an appointment should enter the testing clinic using the west entrance off of Johnson Drive and follow the signs. 

JCDHE requests that people arrive at their scheduled appointment time only and to plan for additional wait time as traffic moves through the testing area. Those getting tested should remain in their vehicles with the windows rolled up until it’s time for their test. Testing involves using a swab to take a sample from inside the nose. The department requests that people not bring pets to the testing site to protect the safety of staff and the occupants of the vehicle. 

This is the department’s ninth community testing event and is part of the county’s overall strategy to broadly test those who live and work in Johnson County. More information about the county’s COVID-19 response can be found at https://www.jocogov.org/coronavirus-covid-19-update
