UAMS, Partners to Provide Free COVID-19 Drive-Thru evaluation April 28 in Warren
A free community drive-thru evaluation clinic for COVID-19 will be held from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Tuesday, April 28, at Brunson Elementary/Warren Middle School at 210-212 Scobey Drive in Warren.
The clinic will be conducted by the University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences, along with Arkansas Rural Health Partnership, Bradley County Medical Center, City of Warren, Mainline Health Systems and Warren School District.
Individuals do not have to be a UAMS patient to be seen. This evaluation clinic is for anyone experiencing flu-like symptoms, including cough, fever and/or shortness of breath. Not everyone who is sick needs to be tested.
Clinic physicians will evaluate patients to see if they need to be tested. If not tested, they will be given instructions on how to take care of themselves and family members at home. If tested, results take several days to come back and the patient will receive a phone call about test results.
If not feeling well and there are no symptoms, continue to stay home, wash hands regularly and practice social distancing by staying at least six feet away from other people when in public places. An online screening tool is available at uamshealth.com/healthnow. Phone screening is available through the UAMS Health hotline at 800-632-4502.
