WICHITA, Kan. (KWCH) - A new, more spacious location for COVID-19 testing is open in Sedgwick County. It’s located at the former mall location in the 4100 block of East Harry.

The county said it chose the southeast Wichita location and signed a six-month lease on the building because it’s much larger than the previous site, the Sunflower Shelter in Sedgwick County Park. the Q-less system is still in place, allowing people to sign in, reserving their place in line. The county said the testing process takes about 10 minutes and those being tested can expect results back in 12 to 24 hours, if not sooner.

Text “SC COVID TEST” to 316-215-8313 to get in line for a COVID-19 test through the Sedgwick County Health Department. You will receive a message notifying you of a wait time or to come inside immediately. If Q-less is full you will receive a message stating “The testing line is full for the rest of the day.” There are additional no-cost testing sites in Wichita for residents to utilize. Find more information here.

The no-cost test is available at the new site from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday and from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. Wednesday.
