There might have been as many people in the drive-through at the Minden McDonald’s as there were at 8:50 a.m. today for community coronavirus testing a couple of blocks away at Douglas High School.

But folks were starting to show up around 9. By the end of the day, East Fork Deputy Chief Dave Fogerson said 411 people were tested.

Testing opened at 8 a.m. and unlike the July 15 testing there were only a handful of cars waiting an hour later.

Negative test results are available in 5-7 days. Residents with positive results are being prioritizing for calls. 

Douglas has reported two-dozen people have come down with the virus in the last four days.
