The Coastal Health District is adjusting the COVID-19 testing schedule in Liberty County and Long County as demand increases for other public health services, including flu vaccinations.
Beginning next week, COVID-19 testing will be available every Wednesday by appointment at the Liberty County Health Department, 1113 East Oglethorpe Highway in Hinesville.
“We’ve seen a decline in COVID-19 testing numbers in our district, and the same is true statewide,” said Dr. Lawton Davis, Health Director of the Coastal Health District. “Even with a reduced schedule, we can meet the current demand. And if testing demand increases in the future, we’ll adjust accordingly.”
