The Butler County Health Department is offering free Coronavirus testing weekly for Missouri residents. Mass drive-thru testing will take place on Wednesdays from 8am - 3:30pm at the health department. No appointment is necessary. This testing will be done via nasal swab and sent to an off-site lab. We notify each individual with their results once they are received.
Rapid testing is by appointment only and limited spots are available. To schedule a rapid test, please click the "Book Now", icon above.
Since the start of the pandemic, the Butler County Health Department has been working diligently to complete contact tracing on each individual who tests positive for the Coronavirus. Contact tracing, mandated by the Missouri Department of Health and Senior Services, is how the Health Department learns who a positive case has been in close contact with as well as where they have been. With the reopening of the state, people are beginning to reenter places of business. This has made it nearly impossible to notify each individual who could have possibly been exposed. Due to this, we have created a list of possible exposure locations. The Health Department is working closely with each location to inform them of the possible exposure and provide them with CDC guidelines on how to properly clean / disinfect their establishment.
The timeline below provides general information about public exposures in the last 14 days. This list is provided to better inform the community and help reduce the spread of COVID-19.
Anyone who was at these locations on these dates is at low risk for contracting COVID-19, but should monitor for symptoms. There is no need to self-quarantine or isolate unless symptoms develop. If someone is sick or thinks they may be sick, they need to stay home.
For more information on cleaning and disinfecting guidelines, refer to the CDC website.
