To provide more access to testing, Norton Healthcare has opened a second drive-thru testing site on West Broadway in addition to the location near Norton Audubon Hospital.
The new COVID-19 drive-thru testing site at the Republic Bank Foundation YMCA building, 1720 W. Broadway, is outside the same building as an existing Norton Healthcare medical practice. Norton Respiratory Illness Testing Center – West Broadway serves individuals who would like to be tested for COVID-19 whether or not they have symptoms. Walk-up participants with an appointment also can be tested.
The site offers testing on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays from 8 a.m. to noon. An appointment is required. Up to 300 people can be tested each day.
Norton Respiratory Illness Testing Center – Audubon, at 3101 Poplar Level Road, offers appointments Monday through Friday from 1 to 4 p.m.
If you are experiencing symptoms that may be related to COVID-19, you also may receive care at your primary care provider’s office, a Norton Immediate Care Center or a Norton Prompt Care at Walgreens location. A provider will be able to evaluate your symptoms and perform a COVID-19 test if needed.
