LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (KTAL/KMSS) – A free community drive-thru evaluation clinic for COVID-19 will be offered this week in Texarkana.

The University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences will conduct the clinic from 10 a.m. until 2 p.m. Thursday, April 9 at Trinity Baptist Church on 3115 Trinity Blvd.

You do not have to be a UAMS patient to be seen. This evaluation clinic is for anyone experiencing flu-like symptoms, including cough, fever, shortness of breath. Not everyone who is sick needs to be tested.

UAMS physicians will evaluate you to see if you need to be tested. If you are not tested, you will be given instructions on how to take care of yourself and your family at home.

If you are tested, results take several days to come back and you will receive a phone call about your test results.

If you feel well and don’t have any symptoms, continue to stay home, wash your hands regularly, and practice social distancing by staying at least six feet away from other people when in public places.

An online screening tool is available at uamshealth.com/healthnow. Phone screening is also available through the UAMS Health hotline at (800) 632-4502.
