Two Drive-Thru Screening and Collection Sites in Jackson County this Week Highlands Medical Center and Northeast Alabama Health Services, in coordination with city and county agencies, are working together to provide drive-thru screening and collection sites for COVID-19 for the remainder of this week and through the weekend. Both sites will be open from 10am — 2pm. Details of both screening sites are as follows:
- The HMC screening site at the Scottsboro Junior High School on Heroes Drive will operate Monday, March 30th through Friday, April 3rd from 10am — 2pm (unless inclement weather). Only patients with a physician order and appointment will receive service through this drive-thru screening and collection site. People without a physician order will not be screened at this location.

A provider will be on site at this location to screen patients and write orders for testing. Those with physician orders will also be serviced at this location.
Each screening site will provide those patients who are tested with instructions for next steps. Should inclement weather force either drive-thru location to close, please contact your local NEAHS health center for assistance with screening.
