Two Drive-Thru Screening and Collection Sites in Jackson County this Week

By Jackson Blaze Staff

JACKSON COUNTY, Ala. — Highlands Medical Center and Northeast Alabama Health Services, in coordination with city and county agencies, are working together to provide drive-thru screening and collection sites for COVID-19 for the remainder of this week and through the weekend.  Both sites will be open from 10 a.m. – 2 p.m. Details of both screening sites are as follows:

The HMC screening site at the Scottsboro Junior High School on Heroes Drive will operate Wednesday, March 25 through Friday, March 27 from 10 a.m. – 2 p.m.  Only patients with a physician order and appointment will receive service through this drive-thru screening and collection site.  People without a physician order will not be screened at this location.  

The NEAHS screening site will be at the Scottsboro High School on Highway 72 in the student parking lot near the gym entrance.  This site will be open Saturday, March 28 and Sunday, March 29 from 10 a.m. – 2 p.m and does not require an appointment or physician order.  A provider will be on-site at this location to screen patients and write orders for testing.  Those with physician orders will also be serviced at this location.  

Each screening site will provide those patients who are tested with instructions for the next steps.  

Should inclement weather force either drive-thru location to close, please contact your local NAHS health center for assistance with screening.
