FLYER ON TESTING SITES
The Charleston County Public Safety Directorate including EMS and Emergency Management is partnering with Fetter Heath Care Network (FHCN) to offer mobile COVID-19 screening and testing sites. The mobile site will be in different communities across Charleston County beginning May 4, 2020. Screening and testing will be conducted Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. The site will include walk-up and drive-thru stations.
“In light of the current global pandemic, it is critical that under-served communities have access to COVID-19 testing,” said Eric Watson, Deputy County Administrator of Public Safety. “This collaborative effort with Fetter Health Care will help accomplish that goal.”
Individuals experiencing cough, fever and shortness of breath can request a screening at FetterCovid19Screening.org or by calling 1-800-365-7410 to connect with a Fetter provider who will determine the need for testing. Citizens are asked to wear face coverings and practice safe social distancing while at the mobile testing site.
Currently, all insurance providers in South Carolina are covering the cost of COVID-19 testing. Patient insurance information will processed, in order to complete testing. No co-pays or deductibles are being charged. All patients will be served regardless of their ability to pay.
