State coronavirus testing events in St. Louis, KC areas canceled

The state of Missouri has canceled its coronavirus testing events Saturday in the St. Louis and Kansas City areas because of snowy roads.

Testing events were scheduled for the Machinist Lodge in Bridgeton and a Teamsters union office in Kansas City, but the Missouri Department of Health and Human Services said the weather led to calling them off. St. Louis had 1.5 inches of snow accumulation by 6 a.m., according to the National Weather Service. Nearly 3.5 inches had fallen near Kansas City by 7 a.m., the weather service reported.

The Missouri Department of Transportation’s traveler information map shows major highways mostly covered with snow from Kansas City to St. Louis at about 9 a.m.

The testing events were set as the state is seeing a surge in coronavirus cases and increasing demand for testing. The record levels of cases and hospitalizations are being driven by the omicron variant, which experts say is more easily transmitted than previous coronavirus strains.

A testing event is scheduled for Jan. 23 in Jefferson City.
