MU Health Care is instituting changes to its drive-thru COVID-19 testing process, including opening a second location at Mizzou North that will be located at 115 Business Loop 70 West in Columbia.
In an email sent out from MU Health Care this morning, they say this week, the existing drive-thru site experienced a significant increase in volumes and is testing an average of more than 650 patients per day resulting in wait times of up to several hours.
The additional testing site will open on Monday, July 13th, with hours of operation of Monday through Friday from 8am until 7pm, and 8 am until noon on Saturday.
MU Health Care says those who test negative for COVID-19 will no longer receive a phone call with their results, instead the results will be available through HEALTHConnect portal within 72 hours.
Those who test positive will continue to receive a phone call.
