Thrive Alabama will provide drive-up COVID-19 testing to the public weekly on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays from 10 am – 1 pm at 600 St Clair Avenue. The testing will be provided without an appointment. No physician order is required. If an individual has insurance, no co-pay is required. Insurance is not required to receive testing. If you are uninsured, you will not be charged.
How the Drive-Up Testing Will Work
This is for COVID-19 testing only. You must be age 6 or older to be tested. Patients will be called at the number they provide on the order form with the test results. Due to the overwhelming demand for COVID-19 testing statewide and across the nation, Thrive Alabama cannot guarantee how quickly results will be available from the commercial lab. Individuals are asked to self-quarantine while waiting for test results.
If a person tests positive for COVID-19, they will need to continue to self-quarantine per CDC/Alabama Department of Public Health protocols. Members of the individual’s household and others who are in close contact do not necessarily need to be tested but should also self-quarantine.
