Drive-thru specimen collection opens this weekend

Memorial Hospital of Sweetwater County will offer the drive-thru from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. daily in the parking lot of 3000 College Drive; the parking lot for the Family & Occupational Medicine Clinics of Sweetwater Memorial.

An order from a provider is required for testing. Once the swab for COVID-19 has been taken, it will be sent to a test site. Result could take 5 to 7 days.

COVID-19 symptoms include fever and cough (similar to flu-like symptoms), and shortness of breath. If you develop upper respiratory symptoms, you should stay at home and isolate yourself from others. If you are ill and must go out, wear a mask to protect others.
