COVID-19 testing canceled due to inclement weather



TOPEKA, Kan. – Free COVID-19 testing has been canceled in Manhattan and Topeka due to inclement weather.

The Shawnee County Health Department says in a Facebook post that due to inclement weather, some WellHealth free testing sites have been closed. It said closed sites for Tuesday, Dec. 29, include the following:

  • Hummer Sports Park – 2751 SW East Circle Dr
  • Topeka Housing Authority – 2010 SE California Ave
  • Topeka & Shawnee County Public Library – 1515 SW 10th Ave

The City of Manhattan said it will not be offering its free WellHealth COVID-19 testing at CiCo Park on Tuesday due to expected freezing rain and high winds. It said patients are being notified via email and text message for appointments that were made.

According to Manhattan, cancellations are happening statewide, including Saline and Johnson Counties due to the inclement weather.

Manhattan said free, saliva-based PCR tests will be available through the end of January in Riley Co. It said the free testing will be held daily from 9 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. at CiCo Park, except for Sundays, holidays and during severe weather.
