To provide efficient testing, advance registration for appointments is preferred, so that information is captured ahead of time. A requisition form will need to be completed at the testing site in order to properly document the test. Walk-ins are permitted, but will require filling in paperwork on-site, prolonging your drive-through time. Follow this link.

Use an up-to-date web browser on your smartphone, computer, tablet or notebook. Follow this link.

Online registration is the most seamless method to register. If you cannot register online, call 469-415-1600 if you need assistance.

Available drive-through hours are shown upon registration.

You will need a State issued Photo ID or Driver License, Insurance (if you have one) or Passport. A requisition form will need to be completed at the testing site in order to properly document the test.

The test will take approximately 5-10 minutes from start till end. Waiting times may vary, based on number of vehicles before you.

No, you must be in an enclosed vehicle to take the COVID-19 test.

There is no special preparation for the COVID-19 test.

To diagnose COVID-19, the nasopharyngeal swab must collect the virus specimen from the respiratory tract (nose). Our staff need to get the swab back into the pharynx part of the nose, not the very front part, in order to get a good sample and have it be reliable. The larger the surface area swabbed, the more likely it is that the swab will collect any virus present in the nose. It possible for this be moderately uncomfortable, but it shouldn’t be painful.
Nasopharyngeal swab is actually “less invasive and results in less patient discomfort” than alternative sampling sites. Our staff is trained to perform this procedure.

Rapid tests available in the market are intended for screening. In order to confirm the result, an RT-PCR test is required. Rapid tests (both molecular or antigen) can produce near-instant results at the cost of accuracy. A molecular (genetic) test is the most accurate and considered as the ‘gold standard’ in testing of COVID-19 today. This test includes Reverse Transcription Polymerase Chain Reaction (or RT-PCR) to identify viral ribonucleic acid (RNA) from a nasal swab.

The RT-PCR test at the Drive-Thru site is covered by your insurance or through the CARES Act for individuals without insurance.

The cost for IgM antibody test at the Drive-Thru is $350.

Limit the people in your personal vehicle to a maximum of four to be tested. Each person should have separate appointment.

No age requirement. Children will be tested under the supervision of the site medical staff and their parent or guardian.

If sample collected before 2 pm, RT-PCR and/or IgM anibody tests results will be ready and sent to you the same night, starting at 9:00 PM. Otherwise tests results will be sent by the evening of the next business day, starting at 6:00.

We advise you to check your airline for any destination specific requirements. Please check with airlines if you require to supplement RT-PCR test with IgM antibody test.

Please note that for most airlines, the test timeline begins from when the time sample is collected, not from the reporting time.

We do offer Immunoglobulin Tests. These tests are designed to detect antibodies (IgM and IgG) that our immune system produces against the SARS-CoV-2 virus that causes COVID-19 disease. They are performed on blood samples collected by venipuncture. IgM and IgG may either be ordered together or separately. READ MORE.

Depending on your preferences, we can contact you with test results by call, text, or secure email. PLEASE WRITE YOUR EMAIL ADDRESS CORRECTLY TO AVOID DELAY IN REPORTING.

If your COVID-19 test was negative, this means that the presence of SARS-CoV-2 in your nasal secretions was not detected.
Clinical correlation is needed.
We still recommend that you wear a face mask in public, wash your hands frequently, and follow social distancing recommendations.

If your COVID-19 test was positive, this means that the presence of SARS-CoV-2 in your nasal secretions was detected.
Clinical correlation is needed.
If you had a positive COVID-19 test, please consult your physician. Self-isolate at home, separate yourself from other people in your household who do not have COVID-19, and wear a face covering until you have recovered from your illness.

WE RECOMMEND RE-TESTING EVERY WEEK UNTIL YOU HAVE 2 NEGATIVE TEST RESULTS 48 HOURS APART

If at any time you are having trouble breathing, please call 911 or visit your nearest emergency department to get immediate care.

If your COVID-19 test was inconclusive, this means that one of two unique RNA sequences for SARS-Cov-2 was identified in your nasal secretions, while the other was not. This is usually seen with low amounts of viral RNA. In practice, inconclusive results should be treated as presumptive positive COVID-19 cases with with a low viral load present.

WE RECOMMEND TO BE RE-TESTED WITHIN 48 HOURS

You have COVID-19 symptoms, such as fever, cough, tiredness, or shortness of breath.

You’ve had close contact with someone who tests positive for the COVID-19 virus or is suspected of having the virus.

You’re at high risk of complications if you become infected.

You are traveling.

You have surgery scheduled.

Polymerase chain reaction (PCR) is a relatively simple and widely used molecular biology technique to amplify and detect DNA.
Reverse transcription PCR, or RT-PCR, allows the use of RNA as a template. An additional step allows the detection and amplification of RNA. The RNA is reverse transcribed into complementary DNA (cDNA), using reverse transcriptase.
COVID-19 is caused by SARS-CoV-2 virus which is an RNA virus. For simplicity, some may refer to it as just PCR.

We are committed to drive thru testing so long as there is a need in the community.

Each individual preferably register themselves with their own cell phone and email. However, if you need to register friends or family members using your cell phone and email, make sure that all other information pertains to the individual being registered.
