Arkansas COVID-19 testing now available at local health departments

Patients do their won nasal swabs at Ark. Dept. of Health facilities

MEMPHIS, Tenn. (WMC) - You can now get tested for COVID-19 at Arkansas Department of Health facilities, and patients will do their own nasal swabs under direction from a nurse.

Testing is available to anyone who lives in or has traveled to an area where there’s active transmission and to those who have been exposed to COVID-19 or are experiencing symptoms.

Not all health units are open so you’re asked to call ahead and schedule an appoint.
