OU Medicine/OU College of Nursing Expand Oklahoma City COVID-19 Drive-through Testing Site
Published: Friday, July 31, 2020
OU Medicine and the University of Oklahoma College of Nursing will offer expanded COVID-19 testing opportunities in the Oklahoma City area beginning Monday, August 3.
Drive through COVID-19 testing currently available on the Oklahoma Health Center campus will be relocated to the Harold Hamm Diabetes Center parking lot, located at 701 N.E. 8th Street. Testing will be available seven days a week from 7:30 a.m. to 6:30 p.m., Monday through Friday and 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., Saturday and Sunday.
Testing will be available for all ages (young children must be able to remain in their seat during the test) and a physician’s referral will not be needed. Appointments will be required. Families are welcome to schedule concurrent appointments, so they can arrive in one vehicle. All individuals in the vehicle must wear a mask.
When patients arrive for testing, they will remain in the vehicle, go through a check in site before proceeding to the team which will conduct the nasal swab procedure. Samples will be sent to the OU Medicine CLIA-certified lab for processing. Negative test results will be communicated via secure email and those with positive results will be notified by phone.
To schedule a COVID-19 test, call the scheduling line at (405) 271-7774.
OU Medicine and the OU College of Nursing are providing this service in collaboration with the Oklahoma State Department of Health and Oklahoma City County Health Department.
