On Wednesday, Governor Bill Lee’s Unified Command Group announced plans to open drive-through COVID-19 testing sites in three counties Saturday, October 24 to address rising case rates in the state’s rural areas.
One location is nearby: Grundy County High School, 24970 TN-108, Coalmont, TN.
Testing sites will be open from 9 a.m. to noon CST and will remain open until all vehicles in line have received tests.
Tennessee National Guard medics and TDH personnel will be at each rural testing site to collect nasal swabs from those who voluntarily agree to a COVID-19 test.
Participants should receive their test results within 72 hours, depending on test processing volume at laboratories.
