Parkland Health and Hospital System is launching limited drive-through COVID-19 testing March 16.
The tests are offered by appointment to Parkland patients who meet medically-necessary criteria with a Parkland physician’s order.
“While we hope to expand capacity in the future, this service is only available to current Parkland patients. Unscheduled, drop-in appointments for the general public will not be available at this time,” a statement on the hospital’s website reads.
Parkland patients can contact the COVID-19 patient line at 214-590-8060.
People are also asked not to come to the emergency room or urgent care emergency center for a testing appointment.
