KCTV: Saint Luke's Sets Up Three Drive-Thru Testing Sites
Saint Luke’s Health System has three COVID-19 drive-thru testing sites up and running. The appointment-only drive-thru sites are available to Saint Luke’s patients and employees who have been referred by Saint Luke’s physicians. Current locations include Blue Springs, Shoal Creek in the Northland, and soon, Mission Farms in Overland Park.
Only patients or employees who meet the following criteria are eligible for this testing:
- Fever of 100 degrees or higher, a new cough (within the past 14 days), or shortness of breath, AND
- Are (a) immunocompromised, (b) have been exposed to someone with known or suspected COVID-19, OR (c) work in a health care setting
Again, this drive-thru testing is by appointment only and requires a physician referral. Those without a referral or an appointment will not be tested.
