Community Drive thru and Testing

COL Drive-thru Testing

The City of Lawton has partnered with the Comanche County Health Department for voluntary testing for the City employees, which began this morning at City Hall. As the number of positive cases continues to rise in our area, City Management has initiated this partnership to be proactive in best protecting staff and citizens. 

Community members are also welcome to take part in this testing. The drive thru site is on SW 8th Street, on the east side of City Hall. Drivers should enter from the north. Testing will take place until 3 p.m. today 7/1/20; and from 8 to noon tomorrow 7/2/20.

The City has recently mandated masks be worn in the workplace, as well. Other proactive efforts include increased sanitation, educational signage at sites, installation of sneeze guards in given divisions and limited traffic at certain facilities. 

The City of Lawton continues to abide by the State guidance and recommendations as a community at this time. Citizens may be tested via curbside service also through the Comanche County Health Department for free by calling 580-248-5890 to book a curbside testing appointment.
