Missouri schools are short on rapid COVID-19 tests

    Missouri’s K-12 schools will have to look elsewhere to get COVID-19 rapid antigen tests. Due to supply problems, the state is temporarily suspending reorders it provides to schools.

    Missouri Department of Elementary and Secondary Education (DESE) Spokeswoman Mallory McGowin tells Missourinet the state has not received a shipment from the manufacturer in several weeks.

    The tests are not only used in schools, but they are also used in the state’s veterans homes, mental health sites, and long-term care centers, for instance. The full story is on ozarksfirst.com.
