This is an urgent message to notify the community that the Jack Hughston Memorial Hospital is not a routine COVID testing site.
Emergency departments are experiencing record numbers of patients presenting with COVID, which is resulting in significantly longer wait times for all patients, including those with emergency needs.
If you are experiencing non-life threatening COVID symptoms, including a sore throat and stuffy nose, please stay home. Consider contacting your primary care physician or an urgent care clinic if you need medical care for your cold symptoms or non-life threatening COVID symptoms.
Check your local Department of Health for available tests and locations.
