The Greenwood Leflore Hospital’s Screening Clinic is now offering COVID-19 antigen (not PCR) testing with next day results. Testing will be available Monday – Thursday from 8:00 a.m. – 3:00 p.m. Referrals and appointments are not required.
Greenwood Leflore Hospital is focused on preventing the spread of COVID-19 in the community. The hospital follows the latest developments and recommendations from the Centers for Disease Control (CDC). If you’ve been exposed or are actively experiencing symptoms of COVID-19, this test can give you quick results.
You may get a false negative result if you take a COVID-19 antigen test 7 days after you develop symptoms. That is why it is recommended to get tested shortly after beginning to have symptoms. Also, if you get tested too early; for instance, immediately after exposure, you may get a false negative result. A negative result does not completely rule out COVID-19 infection.
The Greenwood Leflore Hospital Screening Clinic is located at 1509 Strong Avenue across from the Emergency Room.
