Kimball Heath Services continues to take COVID-19 safety precautions nearly two years into the pandemic, as these directions for visitors on a hospital door show.

As area COVID-19 cases rise again, Kimball Health Services has made some changes.

A mask is required to enter Kimball Health Services, and once again, only the main entrance is open. All other entries have been locked.

The clinic is still doing vaccines on Friday. The facility has all vaccines and will vaccine ages 5 and older. If you are experiencing COVID symptoms, the clinic asks that you call for directions.

Meanwhile, Kimball County Manor is still testing staff twice a week, and the facility was COVID-free as of Tuesday.

The Manor is open to all, any time and any day, but masks must be worn and visitors are screened.

Pharmacist Jordan Autrey from Bemis Pharmacy said the at-home COVID tests were being shipped regularly to Kimball until last week. Unfortunately last week, both the at-home COVID tests and N95 masks were placed on backorder as out of stock..
