According to United Memorial, test results may take up to three days due to the current surge in lab testing; however, everyone will be called by the hospital whether they test positive or negative.
To access the test, motorists traveling southbound on U.S. Highway 59 should exit University Boulevard, take the turn-around under the freeway overpass to the northbound frontage road and turn right on Taborwood Avenue.
Those in our community who are experiencing symptoms and want testing can utilize an online screening tool to access medical screening which will, in turn, determine their eligibility for testing.
There is no cost to those who need testing, but access to testing will only be granted after completion of the online screening and the medical screening. After screening is complete, people receive a unique testing code that will be required at the testing site.
