Humboldt General Hospital continues to take steps to protect the safety of our patients, staff, visitors, and community. We also want you to have the resources and information you need to stay informed during the coronavirus pandemic.
Are you concerned that you have COVID-19 symptoms or might have been exposed to the virus? If you do not have symptoms, you should wait 5 days from the time of exposure before testing.
Visit our drive-thru COVID-19 screening clinic for a nasal swab test that's given while you sit in your car. Please bring your ID and insurance card with you. There is a fee of $150 for the screening test.
Location: 51 E. Haskell St. (HGH West Campus parking lot)
Hours: Monday through Friday, 8 a.m. to 11 a.m and 1:00 p.m. to 4 p.m.
No appointment is needed for drive-thru testing.
If you have symptoms
The screening clinic also has a healthcare provider on-site Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. The provider can test for respiratory syncytial virus (RSV), strep throat, flu, and COVID-19, with on-site results for RSV, strep, and flu. The provider can also provide care for respiratory illnesses, including COVID-19. An appointment is required for these visits.
