Missoula has its first drive through testing facility on Tuesday and right now they can see about 20 people per day.

"Starting off a little bit slow just to make sure that everything is going to run smoothly and the way that we would like it to run and eventually so i think we are looking at about 20 tests per day," said Cindy Farr.

They told MTN News they hope to test more in the future.

Farr said eventually as they have more testing supplies, they could bring up to three teams to test all at the same time. They currently only have one team at this time.

"I don't expect that's going to happen within the next week but at some point we should be able to get enough enough tests in," said Farr.

All tests are sent to the state public health lab and those tests results come back in 24 to 48 hours.
