Mon Health System Establishes Drive-Through Testing for Pre-Screened, Pre-Registered Patients

By Connect-Bridgeport Staff on March 25, 2020 via Connect-Bridgeport.com

Mon Health System has established testing locations for pre-screened, pre-registered patients who suspect they may have COVID-19.
 
To better protect patients, Mon Health System has four locations offering patients the ability to be tested in the convenience of their vehicles. To qualify for testing, patients must pre-screen and pre-register.
 
CHANGE OF TIME ANNOUNCED: Beginning Thursday, March 26, Mon Health Medical Center will offer drive-through testing from 10 am - 6 pm Monday-Friday.
 
Mon Health Preston Memorial Hospital: Monday-Friday from 10a-12p and 1-4p in the Kingwood Elementary School parking lot. To pre-screen, please call (304) 329-7285.
 
Mon Health Stonewall Jackson Memorial Hospital: Monday-Friday from 9a-1p and 2p-7p at the Market Place Mall. To pre-screen, please call 304-517-1584.
 
Mon Health affiliate hospital, Grafton City Hospital: As Needed from 12p-4p at Grafton High School. To pre-screen, please call 304-265-0400.
 
Healthcare professionals will ask a series of qualifying questions following the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention screening requirements. If the patient requires testing, the patient information will be obtained for pre-registration. Once pre-registered, the patient will receive confirmation that he or she is cleared for testing and should proceed to the nearest drive through site. Patients who have not pre-screened or pre-registered will not be tested in the drive-through process.
 
Patients must present a government issued identification card. The test process is a simple nose swab, the same as for influenza. Results will be available in about 72 hours and the patient will be called with results. While awaiting results, patients should self-quarantine at home until results are provided.
 
If you are experiencing fever, respiratory symptoms, and cough, the CDC recommends that you not go directly to a clinic, urgent care, or emergency department unless your symptoms are life-threatening. Instead, call the Mon Health Patient Outreach Line to establish if you need to be tested.
