CLARKSVILLE, Tenn. -- The hours for the Montgomery County Health Department’s COVID-19 drive-through testing will be 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. Monday through Friday at Civitan Park, 650 Bellamy Lane, beginning Sept. 21.
Testing times were adjusted in July from the original Monday 7 a.m. to noon to accommodate patrons and workers during high summer temperatures at the outdoor testing area.
“We’ve rarely seen a line for the last few weeks, so traffic has not been an issue. People have requested later hours to allow for testing during their lunch break. This time frame may help our parents, school system employees and our citizens,” Montgomery County Director of Health Joey Smith said.
Montgomery County Mayor Jim Durrett expects the new time will benefit citizens and the health department.
“Whatever makes it more convenient for people to get tested is a win for those who want to get tested and for our local health department to have the most accurate information,” he said.
