The Coastal Health District is making several changes to its COVID-19 testing program to reduce long lines and wait times at some testing sites, and to better protect staff members from the weather.
Testing in Chatham County will move to the Savannah Civic Center on July 6th. Drivers will enter from Oglethorpe Avenue and queue in the Civic Center parking lot. The drive-through line will route cars into a sheltered cargo area inside the Civic Center where Health Department staff will collect specimens for testing.
In Glynn County, the Health Department will transition to an appointment-only testing process on July 8th. You can begin calling 1-912-230-9744 to schedule an appointment for Glynn County on Monday, July 6th.
Beginning next week, all testing by the Coastal Health District in Bryan, Camden, Effingham, Liberty, Long, and McIntosh Counties will be by appointment only. Call 1-912-230-9744 to schedule an appointment.
The district is also adding 17 contract nurses and 42 temporary administrative support personnel at specimen collection sites and testing call centers across the 8-county region.
