ST. LOUIS – St. Louis Mayor Lyda Krewson says free coronavirus testing is now available to St. Louis residents. She made the announcement this afternoon during her Facebook live briefing.

Krewson said the city recently received a very large shipment of tests that they’ve had on order for a long time. The tests will be available through federally qualified health centers.

The tests are available to anyone who wants the diagnostic test. You don’t have to have symptoms to get tested.

Krewson also said because there was so little testing previously, the city may not see an increase in the number of new cases.

St. Louis City will also see larger venues begin to reopen Monday. Mayor Krewson explained places like the St. Louis Aquarium, The St. Louis Wheel, and other museums and popular locations have taken extraordinary steps to keep guests safe.

In particular, Krewson mentioned a video from The St. Louis Wheel showing what guests can expect when they arrive.
