Montgomery County, TN – Beginning the week of December 21st, 2020 the Montgomery County Health Department will make changes to its schedule and procedures for COVID-19 Coronavirus testing at Civitan Park.
Drive-thru testing will continue to be administered by the health department staff on Tuesdays and Thursdays only from 9:00am to 2:00pm.
Self-administered test kits will be offered on-site on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays from 9:00am to 2:00pm.
Those who choose the self-administered test option will remain in their vehicles while completing the paperwork and collecting their samples.
Montgomery County Health department staff will collect and submit the samples for testing. The results will be available online.
To receive a self-administered test for the self-collection kit, a patient must meet the following criteria:
- Must be 18-years of age or older
- Must have a valid email address and phone number
- Must have a smartphone or a device with internet access for registration completion
- Must have a pen to write on the specimen container
After meeting all of the above, the patient will be instructed to pull into designated area, review the initial handout information, and watch the EverlyWell collection video. If the patient chooses to proceed with self-collection, a kit is given by the testing staff.
The patient then follows the instructions included in the kit to collect their specimen and package the specimen for shipment. Once the specimen is packaged, the patient returns the specimen to the staff member and exits the testing site.
Children and adults unable to register online can receive standard COVID-19 Coronavirus tests on Tuesdays and Thursdays. Testing is free, regardless of symptoms or county of residency and no appointment is required.
