Baker Walmart Testing Site offers self-administered COVID Tests
BAKER - The city of Baker now has a second drive-thru test site at which residents are walked through a self-administered COVID test.
The new site is located in parking lot of Walmart at 14507 Plank Road in Baker and the incredibly simple COVID test is handed to the patient by a health care worker who explains how to administer it.
The tests, which are meant to take place within minutes, are performed at no charge and a doctor's order is not required.
However, patients must make an appointment before arriving.

Baker city officials have also assured the public that no patient information or personal test results will be managed by or disclosed to the city.
