A one-day “drive-through” COVID-19 testing clinic will be offered by the Calhoun County Health Department to patients who meet the testing criteria and while supplies last.

The drive-through clinic is scheduled as follows:

  • Thursday, April 16, 10 a.m.- 2 p.m., Jacksonville State University, Pete Mathews Coliseum, 775 Park Ave. NW, Jacksonville, AL 362265.

To be tested, individuals must meet these criteria:

The patient is symptomatic with at a minimum (measured or subjective)

  • Fever OR cough OR shortness of breath, AND

  • Age 65 years or older, or
  • Healthcare worker, or
  • Associated with a long-term healthcare facility, or

If you have no symptoms, testing is not recommended. If you have mild symptoms and do not fall into one of the above high-risk groups, it is recommended that you self-isolate at home and call 1-888-264-2256 if your symptoms worsen.

Local leaders urge calm and patience during this trying time for all.
