Beginning Thursday, April 16, a COVID-19 drive-thru testing site will open in the parking lot of the Sam’s Club, located at 15700 Northline Road, in Southgate.
The site is supported by Walmart, Quest Diagnostics and local authorities, and testing will be offered from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. to those who are exhibiting symptoms of COVID-19, and all health care providers and first responders, whether or not they are experiencing symptoms. Individual test results are expected within an average of two days. This is the first COVID-19 testing site in Southgate.
"The key to beating COVID-19 is to make testing available to everyone who needs it,” said Wayne County Executive Warren C. Evans. “Wayne County has been hit hard with cases and providing barrier free testing opportunities all across the county will help in saving lives. I am thankful for the partnership with Walmart and the City of Southgate in continuing our efforts to combat this virus.”
Testing will require an appointment through Quest’s MyQuest online portal and app, www.MyQuestCOVIDTest.com, which will screen and schedule appointments for those individuals that meet CDC eligibility for the testing sites.
Once on site, those being tested will need to stay in their cars for verification of eligibility criteria, ID check and a self-administered test. The site will be staffed by volunteers, including Walmart health care professionals and Quest employees. For the safety of all those on-site, the test site is not available to those who walk up.
