POPLAR BLUFF -- K8 News first reported a few weeks ago that Butler County was one of just 15 counties nationwide selected to take part in a study conducted by the National Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. After polling more than 1500 residents, the labs will open Friday to those selected for the study.
The CDC has asked 434 people here in Butler County to participate in their survey and they hope that at least 85% of those folks will show up. Thursday was a dry run for the facility. Michelle Jackson of the Butler County Health Department volunteered to test the equipment.
