570 tested at Rogers County Health Department drive-thru testing Tuesday

Drive-thru COVID-19 testing at the Rogers County Health Department had traffic backed up onto Highway 88.

Testing began at 6:45 a.m. Tuesday in an attempt to keep the already long line of cars out off the highway. According to health department officials, 167 people were tested in the first two hours alone.

In addition to Rogers County residents, some drove from Tulsa and Mayes counties for testing. In total, 570 were tested. Results of those tests will be available in around a week. The staff extended a special thanks to Chick-fil-A Claremore for providing lunch.
