A free drive-thru evaluation clinic for COVID-19 will be held from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Thursday, May 7, at Brunson Elementary/Warren Middle School at Warren. This clinic is for anyone experiencing flu-like symptoms, including cough, fever, shortness of breath, according to a news release.


The clinic will be conducted by the University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences (UAMS), along with Arkansas Rural Health Partnership, Bradley County Medical Center, City of Warren, Mainline Health Systems and Warren School District.


Participants should bring insurance cards, if they have insurance, however they won’t be turned away if they don’t have insurance.


People don’t have to be UAMS patients to be seen. Not everyone who is sick needs to be tested. Physicians will evaluate participants to see if they 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,” according to the release. “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 available through the UAMS Health hotline at 800-632-4502.
