The Coffee County Health Department and Alabama Department of Public Health will be conducting COVID-19 testing from 10 a.m. until 2 p.m. at the Enterprise Civic Center on April 7.
Signs and registration tables will be visible at the rear corner of the parking lot and volunteers will assist the flow of traffic.
ADPH requests that patients arrive with a referral from their physician or the physician’s office can e-mail the referral to an address already provided to hospitals. Due to limited quantities of test kits, tests will be done strictly by the following criteria: symptomatic with fever, cough or shortness of breath and are 65 years old or older or a healthcare worker or a person with conditions that put you at higher risk. Examples of those conditions include diabetes, heart disease, asthma, cancer or other conditions that weaken the immune system.
Those that do not have symptoms are recommended not to be tested and those with mild symptoms but do not fall into one of the high risk groups are recommended to self-isolate at home and call (888) 264-2256 if the symptoms worsen.
Those without a primary care provider can be tested but will be assigned a referring provider through ADPH. Participants will not be required to leave their vehicle during the process.
