‘Know Before You Go’ program provided quick COVID-19 testing right before the holidays


Whiteside county health department wrapped up its ‘Know Before You Go’ campaign yesterday. The purpose of this program was to limit the spread and catch as many positive cases before people visit family over the holidays. The test could be available as quickly as 15 minutes. After two days of testing, the health department tested 454 individuals, with only 69 of those tests coming back positive. That’s a 15% positivity rate.
