Springfield was the site for this weeks testing. Officials say that the line started forming at 1:30 a.m.
With the help of Springfield Police, the line was held down to a half mile in order to allow for testing everyone in line. That criteria was met by about 7:30 a.m. when police closed the line.
Heather Kretzer, DOH Public Information Officer said ”Not sure exactly how many people are lined up but the cars go for a little over half a mile, as far as the mileage goes. And we typically can get a little over three hundred in that four hour period.”
Rain in the area stopped the testing for a few minutes but continued once it passed.
