COVID-19 testing from the Lawrence County Health Department was cut short on Monday after the health department said it had run out of tests.

"LCHD is temporarily out of COVID-19 tests and will be unable to complete testing for the remainder of the day," LCHD announced on Monday.

While COVID-19 testing was canceled for the remainder of Monday, the health department said that tests would be available once again come Wednesday, Nov. 4.

According to the Illinois Department of Public Health, Lawrence County is currently experiencing overall stable COVID-19 metrics, though in September, the county did enter into the state's COVID-19 warning level.

The state health department says most of the county's COVID-19 metrics currently meet target levels, excluding its number of new cases weekly per 100,000 residents, which is currently 171.
