By submitted, 10/19/20 10:23 AM

LITTLE ROCK – Drive-up testing for COVID-19 will be held from 10 a.m. – 2 p.m., Oct. 20 at the Nevada County Fire Department, 113 E. Walnut St., in Prescott. There will be no out-of-pocket cost for testing. Up to 200 community members will be tested.

The testing will be conducted by the University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences (UAMS) in cooperation with the Nevada County Rescue, Nevada County Fire Department, Nevada County Sheriff’s Office, the Blue and You Foundation and Bank of America Foundation. Flu vaccinations will also be available at the drive-up at no cost to the patient for those receiving a COVID-19 test.

You do not have to be a UAMS patient to be seen. This testing is for everyone who feels they need testing. Patients will get instructions on how to take care of themselves and their family at home. Test results will be returned either through an online patient portal, letter or phone call.

Even if you don’t have any symptoms, wash your hands regularly and practice social distancing by staying at least 6 feet away from other people not in your household, and wear a mask in public. An online screening tool is available at uamshealth.com/healthnow. Phone screening is available through the UAMS Health hotline at 800-632-4502.
