UC Health Announces Opening of Drive-Thru COVID-19 Screening and Testing Clinic

Screenings/tests will be done by appointment only in tents outside of the front entrance of UC Health's West Professional Building in Clifton

UPDATE: According to an email received April 6, "At this time, given the demand, UC Health’s Drive-Thru COVID-19 Screening and Testing Clinic is available for UC Health employees and first responders, only."

UC Health has announced the opening of a drive-thru COVID-19 screening and testing clinic on its Clifton Campus. Screenings/tests will be done by appointment only in tents outside of the front entrance of the West Professional Building at 3120 Burnet Ave.

"Testing will be available by appointment only for all members of the community, including UC Health employees. In order to be seen in the drive-thru clinic, patients must have one of the following:

  • A scheduled appointment made by their physician’s office.

  • A self-made appointment made by calling 513-41VIRUS (513-418-4787)."

The clinic can service up to four people per vehicle; all must have appointments. Currently, they are only accepting appointments for those 14 and up.

UC Health says results will likely come back within 72 hours.

"Once fully functional, the clinic will be open 8 a.m.-8 p.m., seven days a week," UC Health says in a release.

UPDATE (4:30 p.m.): UC Health says the clinic is experiencing a very high volume and is emphasizing that an appointment must be made before arriving. In other words — don't just show up.

They've also removed from their messaging the direct phone number to make an appointment and are saying now to "call your UC Health primary care physician to discuss your symptoms and evaluate if you may need an appointment."
