Late last week, the Wrangell Medical Center received an Abbott rapid test machine. This piece of equipment will allow for same-day, in-house testing for COVID-19, according to an April 8 press release from SEARHC. Wrangell is one of seven Southeast Alaskan communities to receive rapid testing equipment. According to the press release, each testing machine is accompanied by roughly 45 test kits.
