Below is Covenant's news release. (Editor's Note: The City of Lubbock Health Department has confirmed the screening clinic actually begins today, Monday, April 6th, not April 7th as noted below.)
LUBBOCK, TX-With the support of Frenship I.S.D., Covenant Medical Group will open
the Covenant Medical Group COVID-19 Drive-Thru Screening Clinic on Tuesday,
April 7 for adult patients.
Patients should first call the Covenant Medical Group COVID-19 Drive-Thru
Screening Hotline at (806)725-TEST to see if they require COVID-19 testing.
The drive-thru screening clinic will be open Tuesday, April 7 through Sunday, April
19. The clinic will be closed on Easter, Sunday, April 12.
Screenings hours will be:
• Monday – Friday 8 a.m. to 7 p.m.
• Saturday 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.
• Sunday noon to 5 p.m
Screening will happen at Peoples Bank Stadium at Frenship High School on Donald
Preston Drive. Patients should enter the stadium off FM 179 at the south driveway at
the parking lot near the tennis courts.
Patients will need to bring their ID and insurance cards. We will not collect a co-pay
for a COVID-19 test.
Not every patient who requests a COVID-19 test, will be tested. Patients need to
meet the requirements for testing set by the Centers for Disease Control, CDC.
Patients who show signs of high fever, coughing, and have a history of contact with
someone that has tested positive for COVID-19 may be a candidate for testing.
“As our needs surrounding COVID-19 continue to grow in our community, so must our response,” Dr. Beth Cochran said. “Covenant Medical Group is filling the gap of that need with our drive-thru clinic. This screening process will allow us to safely and quickly screen our adult patients who are at high risk of contracting COVID-19. We couldn’t do this without the generous support of Frenship I.S.D. and their commitment to keeping our community healthy.”
