1,850 people tested for COVID-19 this week at drive-thru testing site
HUNTSVILLE – Thrive Alabama and Huntsville Hospital said they tested 1,850 people for COVID-19 this week at John Hunt Park in Huntsville.
The drive-thru testing site reopened this week to long lines and calls for increasing testing supplies. On the first day of testing, a long line of cars extended from the park to Memorial Parkway.
“If you received a test this week, please quarantine until you have received your test results,” a statement from Thrive Alabama said. “We are all in this together, and together we can stop COVID-19.”
They encourage everyone to protect themselves and others by wearing face coverings when in public, washing hands with soap and water, and maintaining six feet of physical distance between them and people that are not members of their household.
In addition to the drive-thru testing site, individuals who are exhibiting symptoms should go to the Huntsville Hospital Fever & Flu Clinic at 120 Governors Drive to be tested. The Fever & Flu Clinic is open Mon-Fri at 9 a.m.
