Beginning Monday, July 20th, the Chatham County Health Department will accommodate up to 100 walk-up tests each day at the Civic Center COVID-19 testing site for individuals without access to a car.
“Not everyone in Chatham County has access to a car, but that shouldn’t block access to a test,” said Tammi Brown, Nurse Manager of the Chatham County Health Department. “Each day that our testing site is open, we’ll offer walk-up testing to the first 100 individuals who line up between 8 and 8:30 that morning.”
Individuals are asked not to queue for walk-up testing before 8 a.m. From 8-8:30 a.m., walkers can form a line on the Montgomery Street side of the Civic Center. Individuals MUST wear face coverings and MUST follow the markers to stay 6 feet from others in line. Walk-up testing will begin at 8:30 a.m. for up to 100 individuals.
Drive-through testing will begin at approximately 9:30 a.m. on a first-come, first-served basis with a capacity to test 500 individuals each testing day. The drive through line will close when the site has reached capacity.
Testing is free, and no appointment is required. For more information about testing in Chatham County, visit gachd.org/covidtestsav/. For more information about testing in other areas of the Coastal Health District, please visit gachd.og/covidtest/.
