In recent weeks we’ve seen the number of COVID cases steadily climb across the state.

Fortunately for those in Missoula County, health officials say we're in good shape when it comes to testing supplies, so if you’re experiencing symptoms, a cough, difficulty breathing, or a fever, you should go ahead and contact your healthcare provider to set up a screening.

There are a handful of focused testing and screening centers throughout the county including Community First Care, Providence Clinics, Community Medical Center and more.

We also have the drive thru testing site at the Missoula fairground where testing is being done for free by appointment.

Additionally, the Health Department is now offering tests for asymptomatic individuals.

For the time being, the asymptomatic tests will be limited to those in high risk environments, for example healthcare, grocery, and day care workers.

The Health Department does expect our numbers to continue to rise, but with ample testing opportunities they're encouraging folks to take advantage of those resources. For a complete list of testing locations you can visit the Health Department’s website.
