With COVID-19 cases surging again, UAMS has resumed offering testing for the virus at their Fayetteville location.

The hospital system is offering a free drive-thru testing center at 1100 N. Woolsey Ave. in Fayetteville.

The center is open from 10 a.m. until 5:30 p.m. Monday-Friday, and is free to the public. No appointment is needed, though insurance may be billed when available. Spanish and Marshallese translation is available at the center.

The testing center is conducting PCR tests, and results are typically ready in 48 hours.

COVID-19 vaccines, including doses for children, are also still being given at the drive-thru center, UAMS officials confirmed today.
