Mobile COVID-19 testing continues in Mississippi

Coronavirus

JACKSON, Miss. (WJTV) – Drive-thru testing for COVID-19 at selected Mississippi State Department of Health county health departments and at the West Street Farmers Market in Jackson is ongoing.

In addition to other Mississippi residents, the state’s public, private and parochial school teachers, staff and administrators for grades kindergarten-12 and workers at licensed childcare centers can be tested at each site. The West Street Farmers Market is located at the corner of West Street and Woodrow Wilson Avenue. Its hours are 8:30 a.m. – 3:00 p.m.

Teachers, staff and administrators of Mississippi elementary, middle and high schools and childcare-center employees can be tested regardless of whether they show symptoms or have had close contact with someone positive for the virus. They must receive an appointment by completing an online questionnaire found at umc.edu/covidscreening. School nurses may receive a free N-95 mask at any of the sites by showing a school ID identifying them as a school nurse, or by providing confirmation on school or district letterhead that they are a school nurse.

Other Mississippians can be tested by appointment, but must first be screened through an online questionnaire for COVID-19 symptoms, including fever, cough, shortness of breath or sore throat; or for known exposure to someone confirmed with the virus. The free screening can be completed by going to umc.edu/covidscreening and answering a few questions. Anyone determined to need testing will be able to choose an available appointment date and time. 

Testing sites around the state have been set according to the day of the week. For example, every Monday, testing will be available only at county health department sites specified for that day of the week. Drive-thru testing at these sites is held from 10:00 a.m. – 7:00 p.m.
