ATLANTA, Ga-- Governor Brian Kemp announced Monday that the State of Georgia along with CVS will be launching rapid, drive-through COVID-19 testing on the campus of Georgia Tech in Atlanta.
Those tests will be offered by Abbott Laboratories as a way to increase access to testing.
According to a press release from the Governor's office, the testing site can perform up to 1,000 tests per day at full capacity.
Testing will be done in a parking deck on Georgia Tech's campus. Law enforcement officials will be on site to manage multiple lanes of cars at one time.
Nurse Practitioners, Physician's Assistants and other medical workers from MinuteClinic will be overseeing that testing. From specimen testing to results, the whole testing process will take about 30 minutes. Patients on site will be directed to stay inside their vehicle.
Patients will need to preregister in advance online for a same day appointment. Preregistration includes a screening process for eligible patients who meet a specific criteria from the Centers for Disease Control along with residency and age guidelines.
As of now, testing is free of charge. Walk-up's will not be permitted a test.
Drive-through testing will be by appointment and offered seven days a week.
