HAMILTON COUNTY, Ohio — After Hamilton County saw a spike in COVID-19 cases, some pop-up testing sites will be opening in the county starting Monday.

Hamilton County Commissioner Denise Driehaus said Friday there were 782 new COVID-19 cases across the county over the past week, which makes it the largest spike since the pandemic started. Because of this spike, the governor's office has called for five new testing sites to operate throughout the week of June 29.

The locations, dates and times of operation for those sites are:

  • Mount Airy School, 5730 Colerain Ave., Cincinnati, OH 45239, June 29 and 30 and July 1 from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.
  • O’Reilly Auto Parts, 2280 Waycross Rd., Cincinnati, OH 45239, June 29 from 1-7 p.m.
  • Word of Deliverance Ministries for the World, 693 Fresno Rd., Cincinnati, OH 45240, June 30 from 1-7 p.m.
  • Forest Chapel United Methodist Church, 680 W. Sharon Rd., Cincinnati, OH 45240, July 1 from 1-7 p.m.
  • Walmart, 1143 Smiley Ave., Cincinnati, OH 45240, July 2 from 1-7 p.m.

The tests are free of charge, there is no appointment needed and anyone can walk in for a test. However, there might be a limited number of tests available at each location, so there is no guarantee that everyone will be tested.
