Effective immediately, Olivia Hospital & Clinic is offering COVID-19 drive-thru testing ONLY at the Olivia site. We are no longer offering at the Hector and Renville Site.
Monday, April 27, 2020
Due to an increase in available testing, Olivia Hospital & Clinic is offering COVID-19 drive-thru testing at all three sites.
Any patient with a new onset of fever, cough, shortness of breath, headache, body aches, sore throat, and loss of taste and/or smell should call Olivia Hospital & Clinic at 1-800-916-1836 and ask for the triage nurse before arriving at the testing sites.
When a patient arrives at the COVID-19 testing site, a specimen will be collected. After collection, the sample will be tested for coronavirus and the patient will be contacted with test results.
All patients must be screened to determine if they are a candidate for COVID-19 testing. High risk groups defined by MDH will remain a priority for testing. Testing is not available to those without symptoms of respiratory illness. Once it is determined if someone meets the criteria for testing, the patient will be directed to the most convenient curbside collection location.
Testing Hours and Locations:
Olivia Hospital & Clinic – Olivia Monday – Sunday 24 Hours
Olivia Hospital & Clinic – Renville Monday & Wednesday 8:30 AM – 4:30 PM
Olivia Hospital & Clinic – Hector Tuesday & Thursday 8:30 AM – 4:30 PM
Patients that cannot manage their own symptoms at home should seek emergency services at the Olivia Site. Patients that can manage their symptoms should use the testing sites.
Drive through testing sites allows community members with symptoms to be screened while remaining in their car and limiting exposure to other individuals.
