Allen and Anderson counties remain among the few counties in eastern Kansas without confirmed COVID-19 cases.

Fingers crossed, officials are hoping this isn’t because of a lower testing rate compared to neighboring counties.

On Friday, local health officials said they were not sure why Allen County shows a lower rate, as clinics continue to test according to state recommendations and facilities have plenty of testing supplies.
