COVID-19 testing and vaccination event continues

Throughout September and October, the Malheur County Incident Command System will be hosting COVID-19 testing and vaccination events every Tuesday from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the Malheur County Fairgrounds, 795 NW 9th St. in Ontario. Two hundred seventy eight people were tested at the Aug. 31 event, with 30 Malheur County residents testing positive. For the week ending Aug. 22, Malheur County’s test positivity rate was 18.6 percent, which shows significant community spread. In order to reduce the test positivity rate, more people need to get tested.

Testing and vaccination clinics continue through October

The Malheur County Incident Command System Team is hosting a free testing and vaccination event every Tuesday from 9 a.m. until 4 p.m. at the Malheur County Fairgrounds. Being tested for COVID-19, even if you have no symptoms, is the best way to slow the spread in our community. The event is held at the Malheur County Fairgrounds, 795 NW 9th St., in Ontario.
