Mon Health System Offering Drive-Through COVID-19 Testing

Posted Date: 3/19/2020

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.

Mon Health Medical Center: Monday through Friday from 10am-12pm and 1pm-6pm & on Saturday from 10am-12pm in the Conference Center on the main campus in Morgantown. Please call (304) 285-3798 to pre-screen.

Mon Health Preston Memorial Hospital: Mondays and Thursdays from 10am-4pm on-site at Mon Health Preston Memorial Hospital in Kingwood. Please call (304) 329-7285 to pre-screen.

Mon Health Stonewall Jackson Memorial Hospital: Monday through Friday from 10am-2pm on-site at Mon Health Stonewall Jackson Memorial Hospital in Weston. Please call (304) 517-1584 to pre-screen.

Mon Health affiliate hospital, Grafton City Hospital: Monday through Friday from 12pm-2pm 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 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.
