Due to the sudden rise in COVID cases, we are experiencing a high number of patients in our Emergency Rooms and Urgent Care seeking COVID testing, which limits our ability to care for medical emergencies. If you have mild (i.e. non-emergent) COVID symptoms or think you have been exposed and want to be tested, please visit a community testing center or a CAMC drive-through testing center.
Community Testing Sites - Free COVID Testing
Free COVID-19 testing opportunities for all West Virginians are provided by the Governor's Office, the West Virginia Department of Health and Human Resources, the West Virginia National Guard, the Herbert Henderson Office of Minority Affairs, local health departments, and many community partners.
CAMC Testing Sites
CAMC is currently operating two drive-through COVID-19 testing sites:
CAMC LabWorks, Chesterfield Avenue, Charleston: Monday through Friday 8:30 a.m. - 4:30 p.m. and Saturday 7:30 a.m. - 1 p.m.
CAMC Teays Valley Hospital: Monday through Friday, 8 a.m. – 4 p.m.
Only patients with a physician's order may be screened at the drive-thru locations.
