Drive-Thru Service Now Available

BMH-Carroll County Offers COVID-19 Testing at Office Complex


HUNTINGDON (April 8) — Baptist Memorial Hospital — Carroll County opened a drive-thru COVID-19 testing site Wednesday at the Carroll County Office Complex at 625 High Street.
The testing site is open from 8 a.m. until noon on Monday, Wednesday and Friday until at least Friday, April 17, at which point officials will assess the need going forward.
Testing is available to anyone who thinks they are experiencing symptoms or has been exposed to someone who has tested positive.

No insurance is required, and there is no restriction based on residence. Photo identification is required.
Those seeking to be tested must make an appointment by calling 866-941-4785.
According to Cindy Cole, RN, who works at the site, the appointment requirement is necessary to confirm contact information so that results can be relayed to the patients.
As patients arrive at their appointment time, they will remain in their vehicles and be directed to the testing station, where nurses administer the nasal swap and store the sample.
