Bismarck-Burleigh Public Health plans to conduct drive-thru COVID-19 testing at the Bismarck Event Center on Tuesday, from 10 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. or until supplies are exhausted.

The 800 tests allocated for testing there this past Tuesday were exhausted, according to the agency. 

The free testing is open to anyone, on a first-come, first-served basis. Participants must enter Parking Lot D south of the Event Center from Seventh Street. Testing will be conducted inside the center.

“We have been getting an increase in requests for testing and are working with individuals to accommodate them as best we can based on the number of testing kit supplies provided to us by the (state) Department of Health,” Bismarck-Burleigh Public Health Director Renae Moch said.

Preregistration is available at https://testreg.nd.gov/ but is not required and does not guarantee a test.
