The Maury County Health Department is hosting a COVID-19 drive-through testing event for the community on April 25, 2020. Nurses and/or National Guard medics at the site will collect nasal swabs from those who want to be tested, and test results may be available within 72 hours after the samples arrive at the lab, depending on lab volume. You do not have to live in the county to be tested at this event. 

“Anyone with health concerns, or who has concerns about the health of a family member, is invited to come to one of these locations this weekend to receive testing for COVID-19,” said Andy Kenney, Maury County Health Director. “This testing will be provided at no cost to participants, and those who come for testing can remain in their vehicles throughout the process.”

Sample collection for testing will be offered at the following location and time:

STATE DEPT OF MOTOR VEHICLES
1701 HAMPSHIRE PIKE, COLUMBIA, TN
SATURDAY, APRIL 25TH
9 AM – 12 PM
 
Those who come for testing will get information on what to expect after their test, and should be prepared to isolate themselves at home while awaiting their test results. This information is also available online at www.tn.gov/content/dam/tn/health/documents/cedep/novel-coronavirus/TestedGuidance.pdf

Those who wish to be tested for COVID-19 at these events should be prepared to share their contact information so health department staff members can provide their test results. Everyone who is tested will be contacted about their test results, whether they are negative or positive, and given further instructions to protect their health and the health of those around them.
