Healthy Connections is hosting two free drive-thru testing events for COVID-19. See places and times listed below. It’s not required to have symptoms, or insurance, or an appointment.
Just come to one of the events and stay in your vehicle while filling out the short form, then you will get a swab in both nostrils. This is NOT the test that goes all the way into your nasal cavity. Results are reported to the patient on average in five to seven days.
Wednesday, July 15, 2020
- 7:00 – 11 a.m., River Center, 1800 Citizens Drive, Benton
- 12:30 – 2:30 p.m., Ralph Bunche Park, 1300 S. East St., Benton
See the complete current schedule of testing events at www.GetTestedFree.com.
Healthy Connections clinics are open, safe, healthy, and here for the communities they serve. The Healthy Connections community health network is a federally-qualified health center (FQHC). Healthy Connections and Evolve Behavioral Health both accept Medicaid, ARKids 1st, Medicare, and most private health insurance. There is also a sliding-fee scale for patients without health insurance who qualify. Medicaid patients may be required to switch their primary care provider to Healthy Connections before they can be seen. Learn more about Healthy Connections at www.healthy-connections.org.
