As the state of Kansas seeks partners to investigate new forms of COVID-19 testing, the county of Lyon commissioner is now considering that possibility.

The review follows quarterly CareArc reports provided by Executive Director Lenny Hivery. Meanwhile, Hybley discussed the possibility of “wastewater monitoring,” testing wastewater samples for the COVID virus.

Hivery says the proposed testing method has several advantages. Hivery says advance notice allows for more effective prevention.

Hivery adds that wastewater monitoring could expand to testing for other major diseases.

No decision has been made on testing by the county of Lyon commissioner, and a timeline for when a decision will be made is currently pending.

These comments were submitted to the Lyon County Commissioners on Thursday morning as part of CareArc’s quarterly report. Following the report, the Commissioner approved a renewed contract with CareArc to continue public health services in the county.

Separately on Thursday, Lyon county health officer Dr Radun Oyenuga released his monthly public health report. At the end of her report, Dr. Oyenuga was asked to continue her role as health officer, and she accepted the request.

Dr. Oyenuga will be on KVOE’s morning show at 8:20 am on Monday.

The Lyon County Commission will reconvene for its weekly session next Thursday at 9:00 am in the Lyon County Court Commission room.
