Columbia Memorial Health (1) Careers

The nose knows

The third in a series of Covid-19 testing clinics in Columbia County was conducted Monday, June 1. The county Department of Health set up a pair of testing stations under the awning of the front door at the John L. Edwards School building in Hudson. Candidates for testing could pre-register on line at the Department of Health website, but the team also accepted walk-ins. The tests are nasopharyngeal swabs which according to the DOH website are most effective for detecting the virus in actively sick people. The cost for the testing has been offset by private donations. Luella Harrow of Hudson works in the medical field and says that the test is necessary for her work. She has no signs or symptoms. Conducting the test is Columbia County Deputy EMS Coordinator Greg Fox. Assisting him is R.N. Janice Brodowski. Photo by David Lee
