COVID-19 Testing – Direct Patient Line
People should not arrive unannounced or without a scheduled appointment at a specimen collection site, hospital, emergency room or other health care facility. Only individuals who have been evaluated by public health or a health care provider and assigned a unique identification number will be referred to these drive-thru sites.
Together we can stop further spread of COVID-19 in our state and save lives.
- Stay home – If you are experiencing symptoms, please continue to follow the CDC guidelines of 10-14 days of self-isolation.
- Practice social distancing – keep at least 6 feet between yourself and other people.
- Wash your hands – use soap and water and scrub for at least 20 seconds. Use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer (60% alcohol) if soap and water aren’t readily available.
- Wear a mask – the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommend the use of face masks to help slow the spread of COVID-19, especially where social distancing is difficult to maintain (grocery stores, pharmacies, etc.), and especially in areas of significant community-based transmission.
