The clinic will be located at the Citizen Potawatomi Community Development Corporation, 1545 S Gordon Cooper Dr, Shawnee, OK 74801.

The Pottawatomie County Health Department invites those 18 years and older who are experiencing a fever of 100.4 degrees or higher, accompanied by a cough or shortness of breath, to get tested at the drive-thru clinic. Testing is free and does not require insurance.
