With the number of coronavirus cases increasing every day, COVID-19 drive-through testing locations are becoming increasingly popular as a way to identify new cases without overcrowding healthcare centers and putting even more people at risk. With drive-through testing centers, suspected COVID-19 patients can be tested without exiting their vehicle and receive results within a few days.
How Do Coronavirus Drive-Through Test Centers Work?
Hospitals and medical facilities across the country are setting up drive-through testing centers with medical tents to make it easier for patients to be tested for COVID-19. It's important for individuals to keep in mind that these testing centers aren't just for anyone to drive up to and be tested. They do require a referral from a doctor and a scheduled appointment to ensure social distancing practices are in place and to utilize resources efficiently.
Once medical facilities set up medical tents, patients can drive up designated lanes and a staff member in protective gear will approach the vehicle and administer a 10-minute swap test. Once the test is complete, the swab will be set out for testing and patients will be notified of their results by phone.
The Benefits of Drive-Through COVID-19 Test Centers
Drive-through test centers to diagnose potential COVID-19 patients have several benefits, including:
- Less contact between potential COVID-19 patients and health care workers
- More efficient testing
- A decrease in overcrowding of hospitals and medical centers
- Easy access and faster care for patients
