Those interested in being tested need to complete a virtual screening to see if they are eligible. Those who are eligible for testing will then be able to select their testing location and appointment time. A confirmation email will be sent with pre-appointment paperwork.

The patient should bring a photo ID to the testing site and leave their car windows rolled up for check-in. A health care official will approach the vehicle and tell the patient when to roll down the window.

The testing location is using a self-administered nasal swab so increase the amount of tests that can be administered while conserving personal protective equipment.
