The Oklahoma State Department of Health has announced it will offer curbside testing for the COVID-19 infection in Skiatook next Wednesday, April 15.


Persons 18 or older can seek a test if they are running a temperature of 100.4 degrees or higher, if they have a persistent cough, or if they are having difficulty breathing.


The number to call is 918-287-3740, which is for the Osage County Health Department.


Callers need to specify that they want to be tested in Skiatook. The tests will be administered at 210 Bulldog Drive.
