Jackson County Health Department Testing

Free COVID-19 testing is available every Monday, Wednesday and Friday from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m at the health department in Independence (313 S Liberty St). Please note that testing closes from 12:00 p.m. to 12:30 p.m. for lunch.

This is a drive-up clinic. Please park in a COVID-19 testing spot, call the number listed on the sign, and wait in your car for a nurse to assist you. Appointments are needed.

Call 816-404-6416 if you have any questions about your visit. You can reschedule either by phone or via your confirmation email after booking online.

Testing will be done using a nasal swab. This test only detects current infection, not past infection (antibodies).

Our test can also detect Influenza A & B, so you can get answers faster!
