Appointments can be made through Quest’s MyQuestTM online portal and app which will screen and schedule appointments for those individuals that meet medical eligibility.
Those being tested must wear a mask on-site and stay in their cars for verification of eligibility criteria and ID check.
The site will use a self-administered nasal swab test that will allow those being tested to swab their own nose onsite while in their vehicles, observed by a trained medical volunteer.
The test is then placed into a dropbox. There is no walk-up testing.
Quest Diagnostics will handle the processing of the test samples and delivering the results to those tested and applicable departments of health.
Any questions regarding testing and appointments, please call Quest’s dedicated COVID-19 line at (866) 448-7719, Monday through Friday, 7 a.m. to 7 p.m.MORE NEWS: $1,000 Reward Offered In Case Of Gator Found With Eyes, Snout Taped
