Wheeling Hospital off-site testing, day two updates


Day two of Wheeling Hospital’s off-site testing for COVID-19 is underway.

Yesterday was the first day the tents opened up and Wheeling Hospital officials say they tested over sixty people.

More than 160 people called the hotline yesterday and almost twenty calls were made today in the first half hour.

For that reason, officials say they expect to test even more individuals.

We’re expecting a larger crowd today, I’m expecting about one hundred I’m guessing. We’re prepared to take as many that come in and we’re open until four o’clock.

The Officials encourage anybody with symptoms such as Sore throat, fever and shortness of breath call the hotline 304-221-3995 .
