WAYNE — Whether they were showing symptoms or not, residents of Wayne County had the chance to get tested for the novel coronavirus in recent days.

The Herbert Henderson Office of Minority Affairs, West Virginia Department of Health and Human Resources, West Virginia National Guard and Wayne County Health Department provided the tests.

Similar testing was conducted in Wayne County in July.
