The Springfield-Greene County Health Department launched the new tool amid rising COVID-19 cases.

Amid the spread of the omicron variant in southwest Missouri and as more people seek COVID-19 tests, the Springfield-Greene County Health Department has launched an interactive map pinpointing testing locations.

Those looking for a test in Greene County can see opportunities closest to them and can see which ones are accepting walk-ins. They can also filter by test type.

The map is available at COVIDTesting417.com.

The health department said the interactive map is a new domain, so some people might be unable to access it because of their firewall. Testing locations can still be found at health.springfieldmo.gov/testing.

Public health officials say if you’re experiencing symptoms of COVID-19 and are unable to get tested right away, you should isolate until those symptoms are gone and reach out to a healthcare provider for guidance.
