Mon Health System Offering Drive-Through COVID-19 Testing

Posted Date: 3/19/2020

To better protect patients, Mon Health System has three locations offering patients the ability to be tested in the convenience of their vehicles. To qualify for testing, patients must contact their primary care physician's office

Mon Health Medical Center: Monday: 10am-3:30pm, Tuesday: noon to 3:30pm, Thursday & Friday: 10am-3:30pm, Saturday: 10am-noon in the Conference Center on the main campus in Morgantown.

Mon Health Preston Memorial Hospital: Mondays and Thursdays from 10am-4pm on-site at Mon Health Preston Memorial Hospital in Kingwood. 

Mon Health Stonewall Jackson Memorial Hospital: Monday through Friday from 10am-2pm on-site at Mon Health Stonewall Jackson Memorial Hospital in Weston.

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 8-10 days 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.
