Huntsville Hospital’s Fever & Flu Clinic at 120 Governors Dr. is the community’s primary testing location for anyone with COVID-19 symptoms, such as fever, cough or shortness of breath. The clinic is open weekdays from 9 a.m.-5 p.m.

Drivers should enter John Hunt Park from Jaycee Way. Attendants will be on hand to direct you to the specimen collection area. Drivers and passengers should remain inside their vehicle at all times.

Specimens collected at the drive-thru sites and Fever & Flu Clinic are sent to outside laboratories where test results have been taking about a week.
