BROOKE COUNTY, W.VA. (WTRF) — Officials with the Brooke County Health Department announced the second round of free COVID 19 testing. It will take place on August 14th and 15th, on the campus of Bethany College at Hummel Field House.

It’s part of Governor Jim Justice’s minority testing initiative, to increase testing opportunities for minorities and others. You do not have to be a West Virginia resident to get tested.

It’s just an initiative to get each county throughout the State of West Virginia that opportunity to get free testing.

Around 537 people were tested with just eight testing positive.

Testing will take place on August 14-15 between the hours of 9 AM and 4 PM.
