Ivy Creek Healthcare is opening an official COVID-19 collection site utilizing a military-grade tent in the parking lot of the Emergency Room at the Elmore Community Hospital, 500 Hospital Drive Wetumpka, today. The site will be open Monday-Friday 7:00am-7:00pm beginning today. The site is one of some 20 similar sites statewide as selected by the Alabama Department of Public Health to help screen citizens who feel they are experiencing symptoms of COVID-19, also known as coronavirus.
Citizens who do feel they have symptoms of COVID-19 are asked to call 334-514-3713 to get an appointment before arriving on site. Further instructions related to the screening will be given at the time of the phone call. Screening criteria will be approved by ADPH.
“The Elmore County Commission is encouraged by the opening of this site as it will serve as an additional resource in identifying and combating the virus,” stated Chairman Troy Stubbs.
