Coronavirus: Free walk-up testing underway in Xenia



Those wanting to get tested for coronavirus before the holidays can swing by the former Greene County Career Center today.

Free walk-up testing is available at 2960 W. Enon Road in Xenia until 5 p.m.

“It’s free to everyone,” said Laurie Fox, pubic information officer for Public Health Greene County. “You don’t have to be a Greene County resident. You don’t need a doctor’s order. You don’t need an appointment.”

Masks and social distancing are required at the testing site. Anyone interested in being tested can register online at or at the former career center.

Bo Nash was among those who came to the former career center to be tested. He drove up from Dayton to get to the free testing site.

“I’m very happy that they did this,” he said. “[The test] is nothing to be afraid of. They just go in there, put the little tissue into your nose and move it around for 10 seconds and pull it back out and you’re tested.”

Fox said said test results will be available after two or three days and that patients can set up an account through Make Medical, the lab handling the tests, to access results.

Anyone with questions can call 937-374-5600.
