Elizabethtown, KY (Aug. 27, 2021) -- With COVID-19 cases on the rise due to the Delta variant, more people are seeking COVID-19 testing.
Baptist Health Hardin is providing guidelines for people who believe they need to be tested.
If you have COVID-19 symptoms, contact your primary care physician, nurse practitioner, or physician assistant who can write an order for your test.
You can take your order to the COVID-19 Testing Center at 108 Financial Drive in Elizabethtown. The center is open for drive-through testing on Mondays, Wednesdays, Thursdays and Fridays from 8 a.m.-4:30 pm and Tuesdays from 11 a.m.-7 p.m. No appointment is required.
When you come to the testing center, you will need to bring your driver’s license and insurance card.
If you are unable to see your normal healthcare provider or obtain an order for any reason, you have another alternative through telehealth.
