The location, in the parking lot in front of the Ronald McDonald House, will be available Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays from 7 a.m. - 7 p.m. and Saturdays from 8 a.m. to noon.

CAMC has been working on logistics, testing supplies and workers for several weeks in anticipation of an increasing need in the community for testing with schools reopening and middle and high school sports resuming.

The CAMC Women and Children's Hospital location is targeted to children and families. CAMC has staff experienced with sample collection for the pediatric population.

Children and families will need a testing order from a doctor, telemedicine visit such as CAMC's 24/7 Care or urgent care visit.

Results will be available through CAMC's patient portal, doctor who ordered the test or via text or automated phone call. Results should be reported within about 24 to 48 hours.
