Delaware County Health Department in collaboration with Oklahoma State Department of Health (OSDH), Delaware County Emergency Management, Grove Police Department, Grove Fire Department, and Grove EMS will offer a drive-thru testing site for COVID-19.

The service will be available Thursday April 16, from 10:00AM until 2:00PM at the Grove Civic Center, 1702 Main St. Grove, as supplies remain available. To be eligible for testing, a person must be 16 or older, and currently experiencing a fever of 100.4F or greater, or have a cough or shortness of breath or be in close contact to a laboratory confirmed positive case within the last 14 days. Clients age 16 and 17 must have parental or guardian consent.

“We are pleased to be offering the drive-thru testing site for local residents who are showing symptoms,” said Regional Administrative Director Maria Alexander. “There is no charge for testing and does not require insurance. We ask that individuals remain in their vehicle at all times. ”

A physician’s order is not needed in order to be tested through the health department’s curbside testing option. However, established patients seeking testing are encouraged to contact their primary care provider.
