The testing is being conducted with nasal or oral swabs to determine if a patient currently has the virus.

Embry says results will take five to seven days. Once a patient is determined to be negative for COVID-19, they can also schedule an antibody test to see if they were previously infected.

The testing is free for patients regardless of insurance status.

Interested parties can register and schedule an appointment  online.
