COVID-19 Testing

Thanks to expanded testing capacity, St. Claire HealthCare is now a regional COVID-19 testing site.

Anyone can receive free COVID-19 drive-thru testing, regardless of symptoms, but pre-screening is required. Complete a brief online screening using the "COVID-19 Screening" link below. If you prefer, you can call 606.780.5227 to complete the screening by phone.

*Minors must be accompanied by a parent or guardian.

COVID-19 Screening

How does the testing work?

To test whether or not you have COVID-19, a sample will be taken by swabbing deep inside the nose, which can be uncomfortable, some may even find the process painful. The sample will be placed in a sterile container and sent to an offsite lab for testing.

While waiting on results, patients will be advised to go home, self-isolate, monitor their symptoms, and seek medical care if symptoms worsen.

You will be able to view test results on your St. Claire HealthCare MyHealth patient portal as soon as they are available. You will also receive a courtesy call with your results. The turnaround time for test results is dependent on the testing volume at St. Claire HealthCare and across the state.

Testing Location

245 Flemingsburg Rd | Morehead, KY 40351

Drive-thru testing (specimen collection) will be conducted just outside the St. Claire Medical Pavilion.
