Coronavirus: Shannon Reveals Cost for Testing
Shannon now has two sites in San Angelo for drive-thru COVID-19 screening and testing. This first site is located at the corner of Beauregard and Oaks Street in downtown San Angelo. The second site is located in the Foster Field baseball stadium parking lot located at South Jackson and University on the ASU Campus. Both sites are available from 9 am to 5 pm, Monday through Friday.
Patients will first be evaluated in their vehicle by a medical provider. If the provider determines the patient may have COVID-19, according to the criteria set by the CDC, the patient will then be tested on site. Personnel will collect the necessary samples to send off for the test. The patient will then receive instructions regarding self-quarantine and next steps they must take until test results are returned.
The cost is $25 for the screening evaluation and $55 for a COVID-19 test if required, or Shannon will bill the patient's medical insurance. Patients who have been screened at another location, may come to the site for testing with a provider's order.
For more information about screening or testing, call 844-6-SHANNON (844-674-2666).
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) encourages people who are well to continue to donate blood as it is an essential activity, even amidst COVID-19 response measures.
