LOCAL COVID-19 TESTING FACILITIES

5/29/2020

The Hamilton County Health Department is closing their COVID-19 testing site at the Bonnyshire Emissions Testing Center and relocating this service to four different Hamilton County schools: Brainerd High School, East Lake Academy, Hardy Elementary, and Orchard Knob Elementary.

The move comes about as vehicle emissions testing prepares to resume across the state.

The Health Department would like to thank its partner Opus Inspections for allowing use of the facility.

“Since launching our COVID-19 testing on April 3rd, we have tested several thousand people through our Bonnyshire site,” said Health Department Administrator Becky Barnes, “Our new locations are centrally located within the most populated area of the county and will allow us to test thousands more. The new sites will be easily accessed by walk-up, drive-up, or by public transportation.”

None of the testing will occur inside the school buildings. Testing will be performed in drive-through or walk-up tents in the parking lots. The Chattanooga Police Department will continue to provide traffic support at each site.

Each of the new sites will operate between 7 a.m.-11 a.m. No appointment is required, no physician referral necessary, and no symptoms need be present. Walk-ups and drive-ups are allowed. All testing is free.

Officials said, "Please do not call the Hamilton County Department of Education about this service. All questions should be directed to the Health Department’s COVID-19 hotline at (423) 209-8383."
