UAMS to Provide COVID-19 Drive-Up Testing Dec. 9 in Clarksville

By Ben Boulden

The testing will be conducted by the University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences (UAMS) in cooperation with City of Clarksville, Johnson County Fairgrounds, Arkansas Department of Veterans Affairs, Arkansas Blue Cross and Blue Shield and Bank of America Foundation. Flu vaccinations will also be available at the drive-up at no cost to the patient for those receiving a COVID-19 test.

You do not have to be a UAMS patient to be seen. This testing is for everyone who feels they need testing. Patients will get instructions on how to take care of themselves and their family at home. Test results will be returned either through an online patient portal, letter or phone call.

Even if you don’t have any symptoms, wash your hands regularly and practice social distancing by staying at least 6 feet away from other people not in your household, and wear a mask in public. An online screening tool is available at Phone screening is available through the UAMS Health hotline at 800-632-4502.
