COVID test site

eMBRY Health TestNOW opened a COVID testing site on the north end of Rumsey Park Thursday.

A no-cost COVID testing site is now open in Rumsey Park.

eMBRY Health TestNOW is offering testing from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. seven days a week at Rumsey, 400 N. McLane Road.

While they take drop-ins, they prefer users to book an appointment online at www.testnow.com.

The site opened Thursday. Staff said they had already had 50 people come by for testing, which was great considering they had just opened that day and there had been no advanced notice given.

They are offering nasal swab testing. A form of ID is required, with insurance preferred, but insurance is not required.

Staff said they should be open for the next few months or until the need diminishes.

“We’re ensuring patients and providers have greater access to accurate testing to promote earlier diagnosis and help limit the spread of infection,” according to information from eMBRY Health’s website. “We work with LabCorp and other labs to provide timely results and ensure no single lab is overwhelmed. Test results are generally reported in 48 hours on average from when the lab receives the test kit.”

Embry Health TestNOW (previously Apollo Healthcare & Diagnostics) started in June with one drive-thru testing location in Arizona. They now operate more than 30 drive-thru sites across the state.
