Capital Region Medical Center is adjusting the hours of operation for its drive-thru COVID-19 testing beginning today.

New hours of operation will be 9 a.m.-6 p.m. Monday through Friday and 10 a.m.-4 p.m. Saturday and Sunday.

The testing site is located on the south side of Capital Region Physicians — Primary Care Clinic, 1014 Madison St. in Jefferson City.

A physician's order is required to obtain testing, and only tests for COVID-19 will be given.

If you believe you may need to be tested for COVID-19 and have symptoms consistent with the disease (dry cough, fever and/or known contact with someone who has tested positive), health officials said you should call your primary care physician.

Capital Region Medical Center's mobile testing site was made possible through its affiliation with MU Health Care, which offered its incident command trailer and supplies.

Those presenting at the site without an order will not be screened but will be provided information on how to be screened to obtain a physician's order.

Patients with an order approaching the screening should enter off Madison Street and follow the signage.

St. Mary's Hospital, 2505 Mission Drive in Jefferson City, also is offering drive-thru COVID-19 testing with a physician's order from 11 a.m.-4 p.m., based on volume.
