BUCKHANNON — The Upshur-Buckhannon Health Department is encouraging local residents who have COVID-19 symptoms or fear they may have been exposed to the virus to get tested Tuesday in Barbour County.

Free community COVID-19 testing will take place from 10 a.m. until 2 p.m. today, Tuesday, Sept. 29 at the Barbour County Fairgrounds, according to a press release from the health department.

The testing is free and open to people who are not Barbour County residents, Sue McKisic, nurse director with the UBHD, said.
