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.

CHANGE OF TIME ANNOUNCED: Beginning Thursday, March 26, Mon Health Medical Center will offer drive-through testing from 10 am - 6 pm Monday-Friday. Please call (304) 285-3798 to pre-screen.

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.

CHANGE OF TIME ANNOUNCED: Beginning Monday, March 30 Mon Health Stonewall Jackson Memorial Hospital will offer drive-through testing Monday-Friday from 9am-4 pm 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.
