FREMONT - Increased COVID-19 testing is an important piece to finding the virus and keeping people, families, and communities safe from disease spread.

Complete the brief assessment at TestNebraska.com to determine if you are selected to be tested. Even if you are not initially offered a time slot you may be invited upon availability. Please call 402-727-5396 if you do not have computer access and need assistance.

Test Nebraska can’t test everyone, but will prioritize testing for those who currently have symptoms, have interacted with someone who has already tested positive, or have recently visited places where COVID-19 is more widespread. Testing might be available based on age, occupation, or additional circumstances.

These types of drive-thru testing clinics are staffed by trained professionals. There is no charge to be tested through this process. This is not an antibody test. Testing is available for any Nebraska resident; minors need to be accompanied by a parent or guardian.

Testing will be offered from 8-11am and 3-6pm on both Tuesday and Wednesday at Christensen Field, 1914 Christensen Field Road, Fremont, NE.

COVID-19 symptoms include cough, fever, shortness of breath, headache, sore throat, chills, muscle pain, loss of taste or smell, nausea, diarrhea, or vomiting.

Nebraska has been working to increase access by having several teams conduct drive-thru testing in different counties each day.

Anyone in the community does not have to wait for this drive-thru clinic for testing. If you and your provider suspect a COVID-19 infection, your provider can order testing.
