Two Arkansas companies are partnering to provide COVID-19 drive-thru testing. Sniffle Health, a telemedicine company, and Natural State Laboratories (NSL) are providing the service to alleviate the backlog of testing and reduce test turnaround time.
Testing will be administered from 10 a.m.-4 p.m. daily at New Life Church at 8000 Crystal Hill Road in North Little Rock. Natural State Laboratories is also planning to provide additional testing opportunities in central Arkansas.
The Sniffle Health-NSL testing is slated to run through April 11.
“As Arkansas seeks to stem the spread of COVID-19, there’s an urgent need for accurate, fast and affordable testing,” Ryan Herget, CEO of Sniffle Health, said in a statement. “During this unprecedented time, Sniffle Health is proud to step up and partner with Natural State Laboratories and our state’s health care professionals to provide this essential service.”
At the site, patients will provide identification and insurance information, complete a questionnaire and schedule an online meeting with a Sniffle Health physician. If an individual is determined to be a potential COVID-19 positive, they will be referred for testing by NSL.
