By / By Vivian Fernández-de-Adamson – LPL

MEMPHIS, TN (LPL) — Christ Community Health Services will have a drive-thru to test for COVID-19 on Saturday, October 24. The event will be from 9 a.m. at 12 p.m. at the testing site located on Lamar Avenue (Christ Community’s Lamar COVID-19 testing site, 1720 RKS Commercial Cove).

The ability to offer COVID-19 testing on Saturdays allows essential workers as well as parents, teachers and those who wish to be tested to do so, as they may find it difficult to do so on weekdays due to work. “Our goal is to ensure that anyone who desires a test can get a test,” said Shayla Williamson, Chief Nursing and Quality Officer. “We encourage anyone that works outside the home, or has regular contact with individuals outside their immediate family to get a COVID-19,” added Williamson.

Christ Community also tests for COVID-19 through a drive-thru at their clinic located in Hickory Hill (5366 Mendenhall Mall) on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday afternoons from 2 p.m. at 4 p.m.

Although it is not necessary to make an appointment, it is recommended to send a text message to 91999 with the word “test2020”, or call 901-842-3160.
