Missouri will offer free weekly COVID-19 testing in several communities around the state.

Testing will be offered in Jefferson City twice a month.

The Department of Health and Senior Services announced Tuesday it intends to offer the tests, which can help monitor for spread of virus variants.

The tests also help people meet requirements to have a negative test before traveling.

No pre-registration or appointment is needed. Government-issued identification is not required, but will speed up on-site registration if available.

The test uses a PCR test done by an anterior nasal swab to determine the presence of SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19. Individuals will be notified of the results of tests within 72 hours.

Testing will be available 11 a.m.-7 p.m. at the following locations.
