About COVID-19 Drive-thru Testing

Patients will stay in their vehicles during testing.

Physicians will place the COVID-19 testing order and patients will need to bring photo identification. Results from testing will not be given on-site and may take up to a week to be resulted. Patients are advised to stay home to await test results.

After a patient has been notified that they tested positive, the local health department is also notified and begins an investigation or contact tracing. Your health department will manage those who may have been exposed.
