Wilson Health with the support and help of Shelby County Commissioners and Airstream, Inc. have partnered to set up a COVID-19 testing site at the Shelby County Fairgrounds starting Wednesday.
“Airstream has generously donated two NEST travel trailers for our medical team to use to conduct testing at the fairgrounds,” said Mark Klosterman, president and CEO at Wilson Health. “It really is amazing to see how quickly our community and corporate partners can come together in a time of need. With a few phone calls, our county commissioners and Bob Wheeler, CEO of Airstream, stepped up to offer their support and assistance.”

This site will be set up as a drive-thru and a Wilson Health medical team will collect specimens from patients who have a physician order for a COVID-19 test to be performed. Limited supplies of testing kits are available.
“Like everyone, Airstream is looking for ways to do what we can to curb the spread of COVID19,” said Airstream President and CEO Bob Wheeler. “Our founder Wally Byam wrote more than 60 years ago that Airstream has a role in promoting goodwill among the peoples of the world and this effort is a manifestation of that. We’re honored to support Wilson Health and those on the front lines helping our community during these extraordinary times.”
