NTACHC is doing laboratory testing for active cases of COVID-19, using a swab sample from the nose or mouth. These are the most reliable tests for diagnosing COVID-19.
If you have symptoms, please call 817-625-4254 for an appointment with a medical provider.
NTACHC patients who do not have symptoms can be tested at our Southeast Center drive up testing site. YOU MUST HAVE AN APPOINTMENT – PLEASE CALL 817-625-4254.
INSTRUCTIONS FOR PATIENTS WHO HAVE A TESTING APPOINTMENT
DRIVE UP TEST IS FOR PEOPLE WHO ARE NOT SICK AND DO NOT HAVE SYMPTOMS OF COVID-19. THE TEST IS FREE. CALL 817-625-4254 TO CANCEL OR IF YOU HAVE QUESTIONS.
If you are sick (fever, chills, congestion, coughing) you can make an appointment for a medical visit and test.
YOU MUST BRING PHOTO ID
YOU MUST BE IN A CAR AND BE ABLE TO ROLL DOWN THE WINDOW. Drive to the back of the building and reply to the text that was sent to you.
A healthcare professional will come to your car and give you a swab. You will swab the inside of your nose to collect nasal secretions and return the swab to the healthcare professional in the kit provided. By using the swab, you are agreeing (CONSENT) to be tested for Coronavirus and COVID-19.
It will take 2-3 days to receive your results. You will be called at the number in your records with the results. All testing and results are reported to the health department for record keeping but are confidential and will not be reported to law enforcement or immigration.
THE TEST WILL ONLY TELL WHETHER YOU HAVE AN ACTIVE CASE OF CORONAVIRUS OR COVID-19, IT WILL NOT TELL WHETHER OR NOT YOU HAVE HAD A PREVIOUS INFECTION, OR WHETHER OR NOT YOU HAVE IMMUNITY.
We thank you for trusting NTACHC with your health and we are here when you need us.
