Faith Regional Establishes Off-Site Screening Location & Process for PHD Ordered COVID-19 Tests

Faith Regional Health Services has established an off-site clinic to perform scheduled ordered COVID-19 tests for area medical providers and the public health department.

The testing site is structured as an outdoor, drive-through process for patients to keep exposures between possible infected persons and healthcare professionals to a minimum. It is important for the public to know that this site is not open to the public and only accessible by patients who have an order and scheduled appointment by their medical provider or local public health department.

Please follow the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC)’s formal guided risk assessment. If you are experiencing the following exhibiting symptoms (cough, fever of 100.4 and above, and shortness of breath), and have been in contact with someone who was confirmed positive for COVID-19, has traveled internationally in the last 30 days OR has traveled to the high risk affected areas in the United States (California, New York or Washington), please call your doctor.

Before going to any clinic, urgent care center, or emergency room, call ahead for a phone screening prior to arriving. This will help the healthcare providers take steps to keep other people from getting infected.

Faith Regional will continue to provide updates as the situation evolves as we work with the Department of Health and Human Services and Elkhorn Logan Valley Public Health Department to help to monitor, prepare, and work to prevent and control the spread of COVID-19 in the region.
