Davis Medical Center COVID-19 Drive-Thru Test site to reduce hours

Elkins, WV – The Davis Medical Center (DMC) COVID-19 drive-thru pre-screening site will be reducing hours beginning Tuesday, April 21, 2020.  The site will be open Monday through Friday; 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.

The reduced hours are due to a decrease in the number of people tested at the location.

“We have seen a steady decrease in demand, however we will adjust the hours as needed or if demand surges,” said DHS Chief Medical Officer Catherine Chua, D.O. “We are directing weekend and after-hours screening to DirectCare of Elkins and the DMC Nurse Hotline at 304.630.3088.”

Davis Health System facilities follow the recommended CDC COVID-19 testing criteria.
