Sunset Health clinics throughout Yuma County will offer drive-thru testing for COVID-19 over the next three Saturdays as part of the statewide testing blitz in Arizona.
The Arizona Department of Health Services and Sonora Quest Laboratories partnered with the Sunset Health clinics in Yuma, Somerton, and San Luis to offer drive thru-testing for anyone who thinks they may be exposed to or infected with COVID-19.
Sonora Quest is providing 300 testing kits for each Saturday event.
"If we can swab one patient every five minutes we could do 48 tests per provider in a four-hour period," said Lucy Murrieta, with Sunset Health. " or a total of 96 tests since we will have two providers per event."
The tests will be free for the community and Sunset Health will assist anyone who cannot obtain medical coverage.
Staff working the Saturday events will be wearing personal protective gear.
