The community testing, done in partnership with the S.C. Department of Health and Environmental Control (DHEC), reaches people who may not otherwise have access to traditional testing or online virtual visits. Testing is a priority for Prisma Health, especially providing access to communities that need it the most.
At the testing sites:
- People will be tested for active COVID-19 infections.
- No one needs a doctor’s order.
- Testing will be given regardless of ability to pay.
- No appointment is needed.
- Spanish-speaking Prisma Health team members will be available at every site.
- All those taking part will be given masks when they arrive. They will also be asked to maintain social distancing.
- Test results should come back within four days.
- Everyone tested will receive follow-up information about test results – whether positive or negative – from providers at Prisma Health.
- Everyone will get tips on isolating at home if sick, caring for themselves and seeking more help if symptoms worsen.
