As the push for more COVID testing continues Michiana now has its first mobile testing clinic. Beacon Health is now operating the mobile clinic that makes it much easier for patients in need of a test to get access.
On Wednesday, for example, the mobile clinic operated in the parking lot of a church. They are not testing everyone who shows up, only individuals that meet certain requirements; like having the respective symptoms of COVID-19, having underlying health conditions, or having visited any infected areas such as Chicago or New York.
Tests are administered without patients having to leave their car, and results are typically received in about a week. Friday, April 17, the mobile center is operating at the Goodwill on West Western in South Bend from Noon to 3 p.m.
