Drive-up testing for covid-19 will be held from 10 a.m. – 2 p.m., Aug. 6 at the University of Arkansas Cossatot Community College De Queen campus, 183 College Drive in De Queen. There will be no out-of-pocket cost for testing. The first 200 community members will be tested.
The testing will be conducted by the University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences (UAMS) in cooperation with UA Cossatot Community College and the Blue and You Foundation.
You do not have to be a UAMS patient to be seen. This testing is for everyone who feels they need testing. Patients will get instructions on how to take care of themselves and their family at home. Test results will be returned either through an online patient portal, letter or phone call.
Even if you don’t have any symptoms, wash your hands regularly and practice social distancing by staying at least six feet away from other people not in your household, and wear a mask in public. An online screening tool is available at uamshealth.com/healthnow. Phone screening is available through the UAMS Health hotline at 800-632-4502
