Treatment to address COVID-19 begins with a screening; either online, over the phone or at a drive-thru location.
Online and Phone Screening
The screening is intended for adults (at least 18 years old) currently located in Arkansas who consider themselves to be symptomatic of the Novel Coronavirus. The screening includes a series of questions about your symptoms, age, overall health and travel. Depending on the screening questions answered, an interactive video consult may be conducted, and/or the appropriate authorities/response teams may be notified.
Drive-thru screening is taking place on site at UAMS and is designed to quickly and safely screen people with cough, fever, shortness of breath, flu, or COVID-19. When you arrive, you will be asked to turn off your engine and stay inside your car. A phone number and instructions will be posted at the location and you will register and begin your screening.
Due to a national issue with testing supplies, we are doing a very limited number of tests for flu or COVID-19 at our drive-up screening area right now.
