The tests are free and being conducted as a drive-thru testing service and will take place each day from 10 a.m. until 6 p.m.

The testing process is estimated to take about 30 minutes and results of those test will be available in about a week.

Residents of Lake County and the Flathead Indian Reservation are invited to taking part in the testing events.
