GRAND ISLAND, Neb. (KSNB) - Central District Health Department will be expanding their COVID services after the city council voted unanimously Tuesday night to allow them to add a temporary building to their parking lot.

It will replace the tent they have now that was once used for Test Nebraska and they plan to bring testing back through a different company. They will also use the new building for drive thru COVID vaccines.

CDHD Director Teresa Anderson told Local4 News the more they can use this new facility the better.

“Since the virus, especially the delta variant, is so contagious, the more we do outside the better off we are,” she said “It’s going to be especially important if and when the boosters are approved because we are going to have a large number of shots to give.”

The tent will be taken down by the end of the week and the new building will be installed early next week.
