Traffic information for COVID-19 pop-up testing

WOOSTER  The Wayne County Health Department along with The Wooster Division of Fire, The Wooster Police Department, OSU/OARDC, The Wayne Co Sheriff’s Office and The Wayne County Emergency Management Agency plans to conduct COVID-19 testing 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Jan. 9, at the OARDC campus, 1680 Madison Ave. Wooster. The testing will be facilitated by the Ohio National Guard and will be open to the public for free on a first come-
first served basis, according to a news release.

The testing will be a DRIVE-THROUGH test and participants will be asked to stay in their vehicles while in line for the test. The line will route through the east end of the main OSU/OARDC campus starting on Gossard Drive (off Dover Road near the OSP post), through Selby Road then routing through Williams Drive and into Ferguson Road where specimen will be taken. The entire line will be clearly marked to help drivers navigate through the test route. Traffic signs will be placed around campus entrances to help those coming for COVID-19 testing navigate to the testing entrance on Gossard Drive.
Applications and other documents will be distributed at the line entrance as participants come through. There will be stations and facilitators at certain points through the route to answer questions from test goers. All other roads leading to the test line will be closed to other traffic. Please do not use any other entrance if you want to get in line for the test;
it will interrupt planned traffic flow. Please see the accompanying map showing entrance and exit locations, and the test traffic route.

Test goers are asked to come and fall in line no earlier than 10 a.m. to prevent disruption of normal traffic outside the campus. Testing will begin at 10 a.m.
For more information, please contact the Wayne County Emergency Management Agency at 330-262-9817.
