*New Changes to Free Covid-19 Testing*
FREE Covid-19 testing available. Testing site is operated and funded by the state of Georgia. Test site and test results are not affiliated with Union General Hospital.
Testing site is located at the side of Union General Hospital (side of hospital near Deep South Farm Road).
New changes are shown below with an asterisk *
*The testing site is using a new company for their test results and now offers a guaranteed two day turnaround on Covid-19 test results to you by email or text (test results have never come to Union General Hospital - and will always come to you personally)
*You now register in person - no more pre-registration offered. Therefore, you will need to have a phone with internet access to be able to register in person.
*The new kits are self-administered swab kits. You will drive up, get in line, register, and will be given a swab kit. You will then swab yourself, seal the kit and turn it in.
- No doctor's order required
- No appointment time needed
- Testing results are guaranteed within 2 days via email or text message
Hours for Covid-19 Testing:
Monday - Friday
8:30 a.m. - 4:30 p.m.
