Testing for COVID-19 at Allen County Regional Hospital has adapted to ever-changing circumstances, from initial concerns about a shortage in testing supplies to restrictions on who can be tested and even to the whims of Mother Nature when winds destroyed an outdoor tent where drive-up testing had been set up.
Most of those hurdles have been overcome. ACRH has plenty of testing kits. Qualifications for the test have been expanded, though tests are still restricted to those with doctors’ orders.
And plans to erect another tent were abandoned in favor of a cabin-like structure situated on the northwest side of hospital grounds.
