In an effort to limit possible exposure to COVID-19 in the Emergency Department waiting room, Saint Francis Medical Center opened a non-emergent drive-thru COVID testing clinic (community-wide Coronavirus Test Collection Center at Arena Park) where swabs can be obtained from you while you remain in your vehicle. For this reason, Saint Francis is shifting all of its outpatient COVID testing to one of our testing sites and will not be performing outpatient COVID testing in the Emergency Department.
If you feel you may have COVID, please call the Coronavirus Community Nurse Hotline at 573-331-4200 between 7 am and 5 pm for instructions; if you meet the CDC and DHSS testing criteria, you will receive further instructions on obtaining a test. If you do not meet criteria, please call your primary care provider for instructions. If you feel you have a medical emergency, such as chest pain, stroke symptoms, severe shortness of breath, etc., please call 911 or come to the Emergency Department for evaluation.
