GREENVILLE, SC—Prisma Health has announced six more COVID-19 community testing events for the week of May 31–June 6.
The drive-thru community testing, done in partnership with the S.C. Department of Health and Environmental Control (DHEC) and state agencies, tries to reach populations who may not otherwise have access to traditional testing or online virtual visits. Testing is a priority for Prisma Health.
Testing at sites will be provided 10 a.m –2 p.m.
For details of additional sites or to ensure that inclement weather hasn’t affected scheduled drive-through sites, visit PrismaHealth.org/Coronavirus.
Prisma Health officials also cautioned that the community testing sites are only intended for free community testing. Physician-ordered testing for patients who already have providers, have completed a Virtual Visit, or need pre-surgical testing should take place at hospital-based testing sites as instructed by their providers.
